We had a busy trading day at the start of the market season on Saturday 11 April. The open market season will run from April to December on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 11am to 5pm. Lewisham Council Markets Team are booking the pitches so get in early – £35 if you want one of the SEE3 stalls set up to trade and £25 for a pitch to bring your own stall. We are looking forward to the hot street food as well as some tasty cakes. The artisan offer last year including some gorgeous jewellery from Jayne who lives locally as well as hand made cards and a host of craft products.

SEE3 are once again collaborating with Sydenham Arts to provide High Street Happenings, entertainment for market day. Last year we had a range of performers starting in April with Red Hot and Blue performing traditional jazz and returning with a set at Christmas in The Sydenham Centre. Visitors to the market were also delighted by the marching band, Les Zoings who were a crowd pleaser along with dancing, drumming and Superhero Saturday.

Of course it helps when the sun is shining but whatever the weather if you have some time to volunteer we are looking for more people to be part of the making the high street a vibrant place. SEE3 needs help with social media as well as developing initiatives for the coming year and working to support upcoming events.

The funding for the entertainment on market days is from the Sydenham Assembly Fund matched by sponsorship from Manns estate agents.
