Greenwich Market

Greenwich Market

We took a break from our “finding a place to live” search and went to Greenwich to walk around and become more familiar with the area we will spend most of our time in this year. Traveling to Greenwich from Crossharbour (where we are staying) is about a 25 minute walk. We have to go through a park, and then an underground tunnel to cross the river, which is awesome because you don’t get all the wind coming across the water. The image below is of the tunnel, note the keep left arrows and signs.

Greenwich TunnelOnce we got through the tunnel the first place we stopped was the Greenwich market! The Market itself is open Tuesday through to Sunday with specialized categories of items on different days. On Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday the market is filled with arts, crafts and food stalls while on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday’s it is filled with antiques, vintage items and collectables. The hours for the market are 10am – 5:30pm and it’s very easy to find.

There are plenty of little boutique shops in Greenwich covering your basic search for a local butcher, baker and coffee shop. Then they have some more fun shops selling board games, organic ice cream and my personal favourite a traditional candy shop :) After browsing about we went to check out the park. They were still taking stuff down from the Olympics, so that will just have to be another post later on. It was a good break, and now we are back to searching…
