It's lively, vibrates
to the sound of reggae, and it's busy, that's Brixton Market.
The market extends
from a narrow arcade, just south of Brixton Station, all the
way round to Atlantic Road and beyond, occupying the grid
of alleys and roads beneath the railway bridges.
Brixton Market offers
the largest collection of Afro-Caribbean foodstuffs in Europe,
an assortment from shark and goats' meat, pigs' tails and
salt fish to plantain, okra, breadfruit and yams.
The slightly frayed
Granville and Market Row arcades have the best provisions
and are renowned for their superb exotic fish.
Other goods for
sale include spices, herbs, potions, incense, religious tracts
sold by Rastafarian priests trendy clothes and an incredible
range of wigs.
