Living in Clapham has many pros, and sadly a few cons. But the pros definitely outweigh the cons, and the cons are largely fixable.
One of the most amazing pros about the place is Venn Street Market. One of a handful of famers market type affairs springing up around London – and the country more generally – it's a great diversion for a Saturday morning or afternoon.
In the summer, stroll around, enjoy the heat and the continental vibe that the recently remodelled Venn Street (part of the fantastic Clapham Gateway development project) has acquired.
In winter, brave the cold to pick up supplies...
...and enjoy yourself an autumnal feast from over the Channel for lunch.
These sorts of places are an absolute treasure, and part of what grown and develop for us a local economy as well as a local community. So show your support, and check out Venn Street Market sometime.
