The Eccleston Yards Market will make its return to Belgravia’s stunning outdoor courtyard this Spring. Launching on Sunday 3 April and continuing every Sunday from 11am-5pm, (excluding Bank Holiday weekends) visitors can meander amongst a range of independent and artisan traders, including an array of beautifully painted ceramics, handwoven textiles and crafted accessories, jewellery and candles.
At the first market of the season, shoppers can discover Japanese-inspired prints at Kitty Marshall Prints, authentic copper and silver-plated handmade crafts at Babila and striking golden jewellery at The Golden Grass Company.
Only a stone’s throw from Victoria station, Eccleston Yards is a stunning, urban oasis in the heart of Belgravia – known as the neighbourhood’s wellness and fitness hub and a haven for foodies and creatives alike. Staying true to the ethos of the courtyard, Eccleston Yards is home to many of Belgravia’s leading al-fresco eateries including American inspired café, Morena, known for their amazingly Instagrammable brunch dishes, and Jones Family Kitchen, serving some of the best steaks in London. In addition, visitors can stop off at the recently opened Biscuiteers for delicious biscuits and sweet treats – the perfect spots to refuel between stalls.
Visitors can browse the market’s offering against a melodic backdrop of live music from up-and-coming indie, pop and country musicians – a beautiful setting for a day out with friends or family alike. The market will launch with live sets from two Eccleston Yards favourites – rock, blues and soul talent, Joe Slater and 90s pop-inspired artist Erin Bowman. This year’s music is supplied Talentbanq, a live music agency representing independent artists and is sponsored by the Victoria Business Improvement District.
