Brixton Market has many parts: the street markets, the arcades and the shops. The arcades include Brixton Village (formerly Granville Arcade), Market Row and Reliance Arcade. They are all privately operated.

Brixton Village and the other arcades are the place to go for foods from around the world. We’re talking Europe, India, Asia, Africa, South America and the Caribbean. You’ll find cafés and restaurant pumping out all sorts of flavours. And shops that sell everything from charcuterie and cheese to traditional Chinese medicine.

Where is Brixton Village?

Take the scenic route… Turn right when you get out of Brixton tube station and cross Atlantic Road (you’ll go under the railway bridge). Turn right into Brixton Station Road Market, then at the crossroads turn right into Pope’s Road Market. The entrance to Brixton Village Arcade is a blue door under the blue bridge, about 100m on your left. It’s only a few minutes’ walk.

OR…

Take the first right when you leave the tube and you’ll find yourself on Atlantic Road. Head down it until you find an entrance to Brixton Village Arcade on your left (it’s past the railway bridges). It’s only a few minutes’ walk.

OR…

Head down Coldharbour Lane from the town hall and there’s another entrance on your left, just over the crossroads.

Where is Market Row?

Why not take in the scenic route… Turn right when you get out of Brixton tube station and cross Atlantic Road (you’ll go under the railway bridge). Turn right into Brixton Station Road Market, then at the crossroads turn right into Pope’s Road Market. About 100m ahead is the crossroads with Atlantic Road – turn left and then the entrance to Market Row is on the other side of the road, opposite Brixton Village.

OR…

Turn left when you leave the tube, and then the first left into Electric Avenue. Keep on the right side of the pavement, taking in the eclectic stalls on your way, and then turn first right into Electric Lane. To make sure you are in the right place, just look up to see the foxes and cherries. The entrance to Market Row is on your left.

OR…

Head down Coldharbour Lane from the town hall and there’s another entrance on your left, 50 m past the Ritzy Cinema.

Where is Reliance Arcade?

Turn left out of the tube, cross Electric Avenue, and the entrance is not very far… just about 30m on your left. You can smell the popcorn when you get there!
