Brixton Village: A busy market

One Saturday morning, the boys and I headed into Brixton to check out the market! Its not the first place you’d think of to take a pair of under 5s, but we had quite a fun little morning out.

There are a wide range of shops, boutiques and stalls selling everything from bespoke art, to chicken feet and everything in between!

We stopped for lunch at this little cafe WAG – ‘Wheat and gluten free’, for a cuppa and some toast. Mini Malik was a bit confused as to why his toast wasn’t ‘proper toast’, but ate the whole lot anyway, and I happily breastfed on a busy market street! The staff were lovely and even didn’t charge us for Mini Malik’s milk! Fabulous.

We picked up all the fruit and veg we needed, plus some goodies from the health food store, doing lots of learning and stopping to chat to different people on the way!

If you’re struggling to get kids to eat fruit and veggies, take them out to a big market and let them choose from all the wondrous produce. We even got to try some sugar cane!

Its not a fun place for a buggy, much better to have the freedom of a carrier for this one!image
