Brixton is presently experiencing a radical transformation and uplift. Historically considered a hard-core party place and artistic area with a mix of night clubs that never close, drugs and crime to spice it up, Brixton is a now considered as a trendy place to live and socialise as far as the upwardly mobile professional types are concerned. Market Row and Brixton Village represents the heart of this transformation in Brixton and is now home to an array of bars, street food, trendy cafes and restaurants serving up trendy food from Asia, Africa, South America, Caribbean, and Europe.
At the weekend, the atmosphere is buzzing, hordes of families and young people feasting on the delicious treats, global street food, vegan cupcakes, organic tea and alcohol-infused ice-cream. Alongside the food are vintage clothes shops, music stalls, and African material stores, which occupy every corner of Brixton Village. There are still remnants of the old Market in there too with old style fruit and veg, Caribean and Asian groceries and fresh fish traders still holding out, and this is what gives Brixton Village its uniqueness and culture.
If you are considering a residential move or property investment in Brixton and have any pre-dated concern's about the area, a Saturday afternoon visit to Brixton Village on Atlantic Road should be your first stop and will put your mind at rest. You will have a fantastic time and be able to clearly see the new dynamic potential and transformation that will ensure Brixton is now perceived as a key lifestyle area of South West London.
