Lovely, fantastic! I have been coming to the market for 30 years. Lovely to get a sense of the history and people. Well done Stockwell Primary School. Do more of this lovely stuff.

My Irish grandparents shopped in Brixton Market in the 1940s and 50s. Really enjoyed learning about the early history of the market. Fantastic project!

Wonderful. Brixton Market is the best. What a buzz. I have learnt something about Brixton History which I did not know. Please give us more.

Interesting to see the traders I use and hear their back stories. Market as a community - good society.
