Bustling street market in the heart of Waterloo
Running parallel to Waterloo Station, the market has operated since the 1800s where, at its peak, it claimed to be the longest street market in the UK. Today, though smaller in size, the market continues to provide both locals and visitors with high-quality fresh produce, tasty hot food from across the globe and unique craft products.
From our exciting live events to our ever-evolving selection of traders, the market reflects the diversity and dynamism of its central London location. Just a moment's walk from Big Ben, the South Bank and Waterloo Station with views of both The London Eye and the central London skyline, Lower Marsh Market is perfectly situated and surprisingly affordable.

Lower Marsh Market is uniquely managed by the WeAreWaterloo Business Improvement District (BID) in collaboration with Lambeth Council. This is because Lower Marsh is at the geographical centre of the BID area and plays a central role in the community and work culture of Waterloo.
WeAreWaterloo's emphasis on sustainability is reflected through various market policies including its insistence on compostable packaging, cooking oil recycling and 100% renewable electricity usage.
The day to day operations of the market are handled by a dedicated team of market assistants managed by the market manager (see below).
