We’re heading North and South with two new Saturday markets: KERB X Hornsey Town Hall (in Crouch End) and KERB X Peckham by Peckham Rye station.
Both these markets will be part of our new market concept, “KERB X”, aimed at powering local markets and showcasing local talent – developing on the concept of the Farmers’ Market with a melting pot of the best street food, craft and produce, music, bars and business collaborations every Saturday. KERB X will be a one-stop food celebration and more.
KERB’s Ian Dodds:
“We love Crouch End and the opportunity to be part of a new story behind the iconic Hornsey Town Hall appealed to us a lot. Likewise Peckham is a fascinating and ever-changing part of London and we can’t wait to dive into the liveliness of the neighbourhood. Across both markets we’re excited to collaborate with operators who share our vision for a new era of Saturday markets, working with local businesses alongside the best of KERB to develop a new vision for how Saturday markets should be”.
HORNSEY TOWN HALL
KERB X Hornsey Town Hall is part of an ongoing transformation of Hornsey Town Hall which will see the historic site restored and redeveloped to encompass a world-class Arts Centre complete with a private cinema and a rooftop bar complete with stunning views over Alexandra Palace.
Urban regeneration specialists The Time + Space Co., the Arts Operators of Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre (and who were responsible for Birmingham’s Custard Factory and the commercially successful Wimbledon Studios) hope that the new pop-up market will encourage local people to support local traders and enable business to thrive in Crouch End.
Piers Read, Managing Partner said: “We are thrilled to partner with KERB to roll-out this exciting new concept, their ethos sits so well with our objectives to support the local community and local businesses in particular. The Town Hall square is the ideal place to host social functions, where people can meet, eat and work together in the heart of Crouch End.”
The best of KERB’s fleet of traders and local craft and produce will be on rotation across the market every Saturday. (See full list of KERBanists here). The first wave for KERB X Hornsey Town Hall:

KERB X PECKHAM
The second KERB X will operate within the amazing archways shared with Peckham Springs, Brick Brewery and Little Bird Gin underneath Peckham Rye station – once more aiming to create a market and multi-venue celebration of local talent, produce, arts and culture and creating a hive of activity from 11am-4pm every Saturday. As well as drinks offering from Peckham Springs, local favourites Brick Brewery will have their taproom open with their residents Slow Ritchies cooking up some slow and low BBQ meats.
Guy Bell of Peckham Springs: “We can’t wait to partner with KERB to transform a series of railway arches into a much needed weekly market for Peckham. We believe this is fantastic opportunity to create a market for the local community that brings together street food traders with local businesses like Peckham Springs, Bar Story, Brick Brewery and Little Bird”.
About Peckham Springs
Over the past five years Peckham Springs has transformed a series of empty railway arches in Peckham into a hugely popular destination that includes a bar, art gallery and several event spaces. Peckham Springs believe that through the creative use of space it is possible to turn empty sites into popular places that support the local community and enhance the local area.
