Enjoy a diverse range of street food to suit all tastes, from Italian classics to Hawaiian Poke there is something for everyone! A warming lunch on a winter’s day or something to kick-start that new healthy diet. Alongside daily street food stalls we have regular produce stall and a variety of craft stalls.
Saturday Flea and Handmade Market
The Saturday market is a small but perfectly formed selection of quality produce and craft stalls that change weekly. We have recently opened up the opportunity to trade at the Saturday flea market,
On Saturdays, the market houses a diverse range of goods and crafts at its weekly Flea. From traders selling cakes or records, to local residents clearing out their cupboards, there is something for everyone. This is joined on the third Saturday of every month by the “Waterloo Classics” Car Show, which builds upon the vintage atmosphere of this historic market street.
Join the Flea Market: whether you’re a professional trader or just want to clear out your cupboards it's really simple to apply.
Timed Road Closure
WeAreWaterloo would like to improve the Lower Marsh environment, and are currently investigating whether a timed road closure of Lower Marsh Street during trading hours would be beneficial for the community. This is a collaboration between WeAreWaterloo and the Cross River Partnership and aims to understand whether timed traffic restrictions would have a positive impact on three key areas:
a) Air Quality
b) Safety (reduction to risk for crowded places)
c) Placemaking and the relationship between shops and market traders
By making the street cleaner, safer and quieter, WeAreWaterloo aims to make the market and shops a more pleasant place to visit and work. Businesses, residents and traders will be contacted for their views, and the final report will be shared before the end of May.
