Did you know that Camberwell Fresh Food Market boasts a remarkable 90+ years of history?


This market isn’t just about selling fish, flowers, fruit, chicken, chives, and chorizo; it’s a place where stories, confidences, and lively banter are exchanged with equal enthusiasm.


Here, the butchers, fishmongers, florists, fruiterers, and deli owners not only fill your baskets but happily lend a hand carrying them to your car if they become too heavy.

The delightful medley of mixed chatter creates a unique soundtrack.


Moreover, if you seek rare recipe ingredients, the traders here are unparalleled. They stock everything you could desire and will move mountains to source them for you, just as long as you share how the finished dish tasted.


Camberwell Fresh Food Market is more than a marketplace; it’s a vibrant community of passionate food enthusiasts.

Our History


The site the market is now on was originally a horse carriage factory and in the 1930’s became a produce market, servicing the market growers of the area.


In 1992 a serious fire damaged most of the market, during the repairs the stall holders traded from a temporary premises.


A refurbishment in 2002 gave a fresh look and opened the rear wall to the car park, allowing better access. Many stall holders are second and third generation family run business and still trade in the traditional style marketing.


In December 2004 two new mosaics were made by Helen Bodycomb and René Schaefer were installed in the market.
