The new market will be held between 9am and 1pm every Saturday from 25 September in the grounds of the London College of Communication.

Farmers selling at the market will come from Kent, Buckinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Somerset.

The market will be run by Urban Farmers' Market which is also responsible for the Sunday morning market in Peckham Square.

A new monthly farmers' market at Camberwell Green is expected to launch later this year.

The new Elephant & Castle farmers' market joins a burgeoning SE1 food market scene.

In April the Elephant & Castle Market outside the shopping centre launched a Sunday food market.

As Borough Market continues to suffer the effects of the Thameslink building work and tensions between traders and trustees, another Saturday market is slowly becoming established around Maltby Street where Neal's Yard Dairy and Monmouth Coffee have paved the way for a new cluster of food and drink businesses.

Bermondsey Farmers' Market has been held in Bermondsey Square every Saturday since last November.

The South Bank Real Food Market is now held on the first weekend of each month outside the Royal Festival Hall.
