Traders on the popular Brixton Farmers’ Market on Station Road were surprised to receive a letter from Lambeth telling them that the market was to be closed down at the end of this month.

With no prior consultation or notice being posted by the ‘co-operative’ Lambeth Council, the traders are quite reasonably miffed to learn that they’re soon going to be losing their patches.

In response, they’ve posted up a petition to show Lambeth how much the market is appreciated by the local community.

Here’s what the petition page says:

Help us peacefully save Brixton Farmers Market.
Last week we received a letter from Lambeth Council stating that the market needed to be closed by the 30th April.
This petition is not to argue or fight, it is however to show the council just how important the market is to the community.
If you feel that Brixton Farmers Market adds value to the community then please sign and share this petition.
Thank you.

The petition has currently accrued 564 supporters of their target of 1,000. Brixton Buzz urges readers to sign and share.
