This is not a big deal Stella..it's Deptford market and the do this Monday,Wednesday and Friday. .they allow people sell their stuffs on the road at a cheaper price to allow less priviledge people buy things at a cheaper rate...most of them are Pakistani who sells all odds and ends..
It's called a High street...just like peckham.. Woolwich and all..the south East of London is immigrant dominated so you find all these here

The person who sent this in na real JJC. This is very very very common across UK. What's the big deal here? And abeg it's very different from smelling idumota. Dey lie small small biko.

This is a market, although in a street, but the roads are not in use during market hours, afterwards, the whole place is cleaned and and traffic return. If you don't live in the area, you would not know it's a market once past market hours, that's the difference. Nothing like Nigerian market. And by the way, you find such market across Europe not just England!

East Street Market off Camberwell Road I believe. There's lot of this markets in London and outside London too. Even in cold fucking winter these people come out and sell.
God bless our hustle

London is a multi cultural city, they try to accommodate everyone. This is just another way of doing that. The street is cleaned afterwards and it's business as usual! We are not complaining. Everyone loves it. Only till about 4pm, then street is cleaned up. Happens in most western country guys. Get about more!

I saw this market a couple of years ago. I was so happy for them and wished it was somewhere close to my place. Infact, I saw yams, periwinkle (Isam) exactly the same way they put it in basins containing water to sell in the Garden city. I saw fresh ugwu, scent leaf,etc. Chei, l miss fresh scent leaf. Time to make some fresh fish pepper soup. Na who want some?

Home Services PH said...

Could be called Lagos in London.

Nki said...

Street markets are a common sight all over the UK, though in designated areas. Nothing new or newsworthy.
Don't you have them in Germany? I'm sure they have them in other parts of the world as well. It's not unique to naija.

The General's Wife said...

Hahahahahahahahahahaha
Naija my Naija!

When I saw the heading i was like "nothing new na"First time I saw it,I was confused.I was like"Oyibo dey sel for road too hahhhahaha.from Waltham Cross to Waltham Abbey to Edmonton to even
Some places near Essex.

If they oyibos can sell clothes,shoes,bags and toys on d street,surely my Naija brothers and sisters can sell pepper and tomatoes. Hehehehe

Actually it looks very different from Nigerian markets, can you see how clean and organised everything is?

It looks like Romford market though, that area has a large black and asian population. You won't see something like this where all the rich people live sha.

Lol. This is just a street market that any city would have; especially where they have diverse population of people.

Click my name for all your celebration cakes and cupcakes, cheers

Cakes by LuliGrace (London) said...

A lot of these stalls are majorly owned by asians (and some africans). They even deal more in african groceries than africans themselves.

Anonymous said...

nonsense, this person must really be a newbie in the UK. This is called farmers market, and they don't look anywhere like Idumota market. This looks like the one in front of Lewisham Shopping mall.

Stella you and the person that sent in these pictures need to get out more.

Its definitely Dalston market. The person that sent this is definitely a big JJC, cos this is normal all over east and south east London.

Ok, everybody has been to or is in London, and u guys beg for everything here even pampers. I can feed hundreds of you but I've not yet been to Europe. Misplaced priorities or what?? I will go there only when I have good reason to, not to just for going sake. I am no longer a slave

Stella I came across this kinda market in Apensen, Germany as far back as 2002! U haven't???

Peckham has this. Infact I think it's a shuffling market around east London mostly at some specific days of the week or so.

Anon take a chill pill
What is the population of Nigeria again??
What is the number of people commenting on this blog??
Do you know that??
Or you think it's the 100_200 people that leave comment that visit the blogs only..

Some people visit and don't comment. Some comment occasionally

How many poor and rich people are in Nigeria

All of a sudden you feel because some people are well travelled then they are the beggars?? Please.. You didn't wonder if it was the givers that traveled??

When you have the money travel but until then stop having on those who have left the shores of Nigeria and you haven't..

Everyone always claiming they can feed the entire nation.. Issh

Monday Tuesday Thursday you find Market like this in Amsterdam Bijlmer

Anonymous said...

This is a common feature in most big cities and towns in Uk.I remember the open market at the back of bullring in Birmingham.You get things at incredibly cheap rates.The eastern european guys will open blocked phones and fix bad ones in a jiffy there.Even in places like walsall,tamworth and bloxwich there are periodic open markets like this.Reminiscing on those sweet days of mine at west midlands.

Smurf, my local halal shop is owned and run by Asians but they sell EVERYTHING African. Eachtime I see a Nigerian or Ghanaian meal on YouTube or food blogs I want to try, all I have to do is go there and they sell some.
I hardly see African shops run and owned by Africans. Just a few...
These guys even greet you in your local dialect when you enter..lol

Tetrina said...

Stella oyibo..lol But to be fair, If you marry a caucasian, the chances of cooking African food is so small. No need for pots of soups, swallows all the time. Jollof, yes! However, one tends to cook a lot of Mac and cheese, pasta bake, spag bol, salmon, chicken in white wine sauce, stroganoff etc....lol

Anon 11:55 what a horrible person you are. So what if people beg? So what if you can feed people who are out of the country? Are you God? You have shown your wicked heart and unintelligence here. Even though people beg now, God can change people's destiny for good. Keep trying to belittle people. It will not make you look better.

@ Zeddicus, your unintelligence is beyond comprehension. People are merely stating facts and not defending England. Stop the hate!!! You are a slave to hatred. Free yourself!!!

So you think they are Nigerians?
You people will not kill me, lmao.

My dear, you will be shocked that the percentage of Nigerians in this market is 10% or even less.

This is not a new thing, these are stall markets. They pay weekly rent for their stall spaces.
