East Street Market on London's Walworth Road

Yesterday I took a trip to London to drop off a delivery - which took me to the neighborhood of the Walworth Road, south of Elephant and Castle, that I knew a little. Driving away on my previous visit I had spotted, on a Saturday, what looked a really vibrant street market. I decided to see if things were the same on a Thursday, and indeed they were.

This was East Street market, and it was rather larger than I imagined it might be. But what I really noticed was a sense of community. So many people seemed to know each other, and the vibrancy was connected to what seemed to be a genuinely happy disposition of most out on the market, whether trader or customer.

And yes, Charlie Chaplin was born on this street!
