One of the oldest markets in London, with a rich history, we feel privileged to be hosting a makers market on alternate weekends until November 18th. With a footfall of over 25 000 people per day on the weekends, we look forward to showcasing an array of unique handmade products and makers.

The launch weekend takes place on September 8th and 9th.

The marketing team at OSM will be will be working hard promoting the launch and dates leading to Christmas. We ask that you put your best 5 photos – portrait  and product in the dropbox – link below.
