Roman Road Market

Roman Road Market is situated on the oldest known trade route in Britain, the road to Colchester famously taken by Boudicea on her way to burn the Romans in London. The road is in the heart of the East End. It’s a friendly, funky place to shop for some real bargains. Super Saturday takes place every weekend throughout the summer and features the very best in crafts, home & garden, antiques, food, clothing, books, special events, street performances, jugglers, stilt walkers, face painting and much more! In winter, the market is smaller. It’s not so much of a fun day out, but still a fantastic place for shopping. The Roman Road Arts & Craft Market is located at Ewart Place every Saturday and the Roman Road Farmers Market takes place on the first Saturday of every month, on Cardigan Road from 8.30am to 5.30pm.

  1. I was born there and used to work putting the stalls out every Tuesday and Thursday before I went to school and on Saturdays that was in the late 40s and early 50s it was a wonderful place to live.

    1. Hi John,

      I’m a graphic design student from the CASS faculty of art and design. I am currently doing a project to commemorate stories along Roman Road and want to know more about stories from a personal perspective. Is it convenient for you if I set up an interview with you?
