Peckham Salvage Yard

Peckham Salvage Yard is a South London vintage market offering everything from retro homeware and clothing to posters, prints and vintage oddities.

As you know, I love a good London market and as I was yet to visit Peckham, Rosie and I decided to pay a visit on Sunday.

The market was held in Copeland Gallery with some stalls spilling out onto the square, where a small crowd hung out drinking and listening to vinyls being played in the sun. Though Peckham is a bit rough around the edges, I loved the mix of buildings and history here – with brick warehouses and 60s towerblocks looking over to The Shard. It reminded me a little bit of a less cute Columbia Road.

After having a look around at the stalls, we decided it was time for a drink. Because nothing beats the Sunday blues like a tall Mojito.

We headed up to nearby Bussey Building which had a cute rooftop overlooking Peckham, Canary Wharf and other popular Peckham rooftop bar, Franks.

Cocktails here were £8 each which certainly isn’t the cheapest (especially for South London) but the rum measurements were very generous, so generous in fact that my bus ride home felt a little hairy at times.

And that was it for my first time in Peckham!

If you are looking for other good London markets to visit, I would definitely recommend foodie Borough Market, Columbia Road Flower Market and vintage haven Portabello Market.

And if you are looking for other urban summer activities in London then the street feasts are always good (my local is the fab Lewisham Model Market Street Feast) as well as new summer rooftop pop up Pergola on the Roof near Shepherds Bush.
