Long-running South London street market in Walworth.
The market bit of East Street seems to depend on the day, but it is the Walworth Road end not the Old Kent Road end, and is never further than Thurlow Street. There are shops lining the street which are open when the market is on.
You can get fruit and vegetables (including Caribbean), African material, Bibles and tambourines, and random household stuff. There are a few butchers on the street which sell things like stomachs and other cuts of offal.
There is a haberdashery stall some days, often material stalls as well. secretlondon thinks there are also plants on Sundays.
