Deptford Market Yard, nestled within the renovated historical railway arches adjacent to Deptford station, is London’s latest hidden food and shopping gem. It features an eclectic mix of independents and buzzing creative entrepreneurial start-ups.  Deptford Market Yard builds on the already thriving local market and retail scene, offering a platform for small businesses, many of which are local start ups, to reach a wider audience and for some, the yard provides the first bricks and mortar home for businesses previously operating as pop ups, festival regulars and street food vans.
