The Open Art Market

Our residency on Portobello Road's Tavistock Square is the perfect location for new and experienced Artists and Art Lovers to buy, sell and connect with the creative community.


The Open Art Market seeks to connect community and creativity, and we're proud of our ethos of accessibility and affordability. You don't have to be experienced to join, our friendly team will be on hand to help with everything you need to get you started.


Markets are application-only, and we aim to offer equal opportunities to new and experienced artists. We have a limited number of stalls available, and due to a high number of applications we can't guarantee everyone a space. However, we always have more events coming up and ask that you continue to apply to future events.

We host free workshops, live music and creative activities on Market Days, and have opportunities for creatives to meet and get involved with future events.
