With an award-winning line-up of over 40 independent street food stalls and local producers, foodie mecca Brockley Market turns the big 5 this month – and welcomes its 500,000th visitor at the same time. Not bad for what started out as a side project from a local photographer.

The tummy-filling occasion will, of course, be marked with all sorts of surprises this weekend. Celebrations include a 5th birthday cake and treats from Kooky Bakes, live music from Balkan folk collective Benny and ‘The Cheese Grinder’, plus the first lucky 50 visitors will get a goody bag.

And, as well as the usual groceries stalls, expect some of the capital’s best streetfood trucks and stalls including Bill or Beak and Mother Flipper. Follow @brockleymarket on Twitter or more info here. 10am to 2pm, Sat 24th, Lewisham College Car Park, corner of Tressillian Road and Lewisham Way SE4
