Brighton Open Market - Your Destination for Fashion, Clothes, Accessories and Vintage shopping...

If you’re bored with chain stores, and want something different for your wardrobe, there’s plenty to excite your interest at the Brighton Open Market. 

The main market opening times are as follows:

Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
Saturday 10am – 5pm
Sundays 10am – 5pm*
*Some Stalls are not open on Sundays.

The market itself is easy to find, with two entrances – one off Ditchling Road opposite the level, and the other on Marshalls Row, London Road


For something really original, head to Twisted Rainbow, who sell skateboard accessories and custom one-off printed clothing. You can really personalise your wardrobe and make it different to everyone else’s here -

Smith & Crumble is another T-shirt specialist, offering limited edition clothing for men, women and kids. Their stock includes hoodies, T-shirts earrings and bags. All T-shirts are made inhouse by the team except for screen printed ones.

Shaboutique over at Unit 21 is for you if you like the idea your clothes being made from recycled materials. It’s a working studio where local artists make clothing like jackets and trousers, as well as accessories and homeware from material that would normally be thrown away. One artist, Fiona, makes jewellery and hats from textiles while Nicole uses bicycle inner tubes and banners and turns them into jewellery, mats and bags. The joy of Shaboutique is that every item is original. Find out more about the shop and the concept on

Kids aren’t left out at the Open Market either. If you want a fairy dress for your child, look no further than Unit 22, where Beth and Charlotte make them by hand. They also have locally produced fashion and accessories for both girls and women.

Over at the Eco Makers Emporium, at Unit 25, you can treat yourself to handmade, upcycled clothing and accessories by Darryl Black. She creates one-off pieces of patchworked and appliquéd knitwear and accessories form recycled and upcycled materials. Visit her shop to browse through silk dresses and tops from vintage silk scarves, hats from offcuts and jackets, plus dresses, mini ponchos and more. She will even transform an item of yours into something new. If you want to learn to do this for yourself, Daryl runs upcycling classes and workshops.

If you do get the dressmaking bug, visit Buttons and Bows Haberdashery, a market stalwart since the 1980s. Here you’ll find haberdashery, fabrics and knitting yarns as well as craft materials.

Brighton Naturally at Unit 39 sells natural fibre clothing and accessories as well as books, foods and healthy snacks.  .

Finally, head upstairs toStudio 9 where you’ll find Pear Shaped Apparel. They design, print and create original garments for their own brand 'Pear Shaped Apparel' and also sell independent brands including A.IN.T, Stussy and Rebel 8 :
