I had a lovely day off on tuesday and paid my first visit to Brixton Village. I am familiar with Brixton Market, and really enjoy shopping there for cheap veg and other bargain treats! My friend Emily told me about Brixton Village indoor market a few months ago, and I have been looking forward to exploring it ever since. In 2009 Lambeth council teamed up with a local social enterprise with the aim of regenerating the vacant units in the once famous market, and it has been really successful. Now there are vintage clothes shops, old fashioned sweet shops, small art galleries, and an amazing selection of cafes. I had a really tasty lunch at a colombian cafe, everyone spoke spanish and there was a lovely friendly atmosphere!
