Oval Farmers' Market special day 2 April

Come and enjoy the Farmers' Market

Now that the sun is shining, the Farmers' Market in St Mark's Churchyard at the Oval is in celebratory mood. Make a date to come to a special market on Saturday 2 April, when we will be marking the official granting of planning permission for the market to use the site. We have invited the new Mayor of Lambeth to join us.

Oval Partnership will also have a stall at the market where we will be updating you on the progress of the project to upgrade and landscape the St Mark's Churchyard area. Many of you will have been involved in the consultation last year and have been asking what's happening. We will hold a short Annual General Meeting at 10.30am, where we will elect officers for the coming year and present our accounts. Please try to attend that meeting to support us in our continuing work. If you would like to stand as a member of the management committee, please get in touch at to let us know and find out what's involved.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 2 April!

Dear Neighbours

Volunteers are busy in the background preparing for our next Bazaar!
Our Bazaar Coordinator, Gisella, is doing a great job
pulling it all together in her cheerful way.

Pimlico Plumbers have very kindly offered us a van again,
and Galo is available to drive once more.
Thank you to them both!

  • We need a strong man to accompany Galo to load and unload the van, please.
Once that's confirmed,
we'll be able to come back to you regarding
possible collections on Friday late afternoon / early evening.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of neighbours donating items,
so much so that the garage is now full!!
  • Can anyone offer temporary overflow storage space, please?
This looks to be a Bumper Bazaar,
so Gisella would be glad of more helpers,
especially volunteers to
  • Set up on Friday evening 6-8pm, unloading vehicles

To make our Bazaars even more successful, we need more volunteers to help before, during and after the Bazaar.  We are looking especially for a few strong people to help collect and carry the more bulky items.  We also need a van and driver to help pick up items from homes.  We especially need help Friday evening.  The next Bazaar is scheduled for Saturday, 12 March, from 11am to 1.30pm at St. Anselm’s Church Hall at Kennington Cross.  Donations can be dropped off at the Hall on Friday evening between 6 and 8 pm and Saturday morning from 9 to10 am. 
How much money we make is directly tied to how much is donated and how many people turn up, so please come along and help us.  We hope to use the proceeds from the March Bazaar to fund Tai Chi classes, free to all our community!
