Dagenham Sunday Market is owned and operated by Charfleet Market Operators and is our flagship Market, with over 600 stalls and thousands of visitors each week. Our record number is 15,000 visitors!
The History of Dagenham Sunday Market:
The market launched in 2002 and has been on the same site since and is now 4 times the size due to the overwhelming demand for more trading space. The market is a fantastic Sunday morning out for families and we have visitors from London, Essex, Kent, Cambridgeshire and further!
Dagenham Sunday Market has developed a reputation as a fashion market but you will find almost everything else!

Many celebrities visit our market such as Stacey Solomon who wore a cream chiffon frock at the premiere of Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai, and admitted her frock was a bargain from the market. She said: “I got dressed in loads of nice, expensive stuff but this is from Dagenham Sunday Market.”
