This weekend, Copeland Park estate is hosting its first Saturday market in its car park. Traders will be flogging all the usual delights we’ve come to expect at such events: vintage goods, fashion, records, books, jewellery, art work, cakes and hot food. Meanwhile, Bring Your Own Bike are on hand helping amateurs fix their bikes. And you can even get your car washed by fundraising Camberwell Art students too. Sweet. In the case of rain, there’s a back-up location in the Copeland Gallery, right next to The Nines Bar. Saturday 16th May, 11am-6pm. 133 Copeland Road, SE15 3SN

CLAPHAM: Burger Shack

A timber-clad residency at The Windmill with ace views over one of south London’s leafiest corners? Oh my. And at this summer-long corrugated iron shack you can expect beef from West Country farms, pork sourced from Essex Freedom Food pigs, and brioche-style buns (naturally) baked by a London artisan baker. And veggies can gorge on beetroot, almond and lentil hash burger, too. If you don’t live in SW4, don’t worry, keep an eye on the pub’s sleek airstream, decorated with old artwork and graffiti, about to roam other Young’s haunts across the capital. Follow @YoungsShack for more. Clapham Common South Side,  SW4

This Chelsea Fringe (16th May to 7th June), Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens becomes home to last year’s gold-winning display by Hugo Bugg, a waterscape garden which cleverly reuses rain water to reduce the risk of flooding. Celebrations kick off tomorrow (Friday 15th May) in the pleasing form of Pimm’s, snacks, live acoustic music and a chance to explore this peach of an outdoor space yourself (let’s hope the rain holds off). For the curious, Bugg will be there to talk through his design, which is part of the Vauxhall Missing Link Green Trail, connecting the parks and open-spaces of SE11 with an emerging gallery district. Free. Launches tomorrow, from 12midday-3pm at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens; more info here.
