Brixton’s covered markets are to host night markets organised by Crafty Fox, which has previously used the Dogstar for local events.

The first is on Thursday 20 June. Crafty Fox says it will be bringing its mix of emerging design talent to Brixton Village and Market Row on every third Thursday of the month, from 6 to 10pm, until September, with an “original pick of the best artisanal, sustainable, small-batch makers”. Each market will feature 35 makers with a new mix each month.

“Brixton Village Lates” music events will be on at the same time.
