As the appetite for greenery in the home continues to grow, more and more plant-based businesses are popping up – either selling those on-trend plants that we are all after, making beautiful pots to display them in (equally as covetable!) or taking inspiration from the botanical world to create items that need a little less care and attention – art prints, jewellery, textiles and stationery. For us plant fans, what could be better than bringing all of these green-loving indie brands under one roof?! Green Rooms Market’s first event, held in Peckham in the 27th May did just that.

The market is the brainchild of identical twin sisters Annie and Jemma Charman, who came up with the idea while both on maternity leave when they had their first babies within months of each other. Their shared passion for all things botanical, inspired by their green-fingered parents, drove them to launch the event, despite both having more corporate careers – Jemma as a Homeware buyer for Marks & Spencer and Annie as a Digital Marketing Technology specialist.

Held at Peckham Springs in south London, the event was buzzing- the May sunshine beating down on shoppers as they weaved through the carefully curated stalls of leafy lovelies and handcrafted vessels. Firm 91 favourites Botanique Workshop and Forest London featured, while we discovered many new-to-us makers and designers. We were thrilled to spot our latest issue of the magazine had even made an appearance on Albert and Moo’s stall!

There were over 20 stallholders, with plants as the overarching theme, yet there was real variety in what was on offer. Concrete planters, pots made using a 3D printer, embroidered plant pictures, macrame holders and of course an abundance of plants from cacti and succulents to ferns and cheese plants. There were even some felt plants for the not-so-green-fingered!

If you had kids to entertain or just wanted a break from shopping, there were a few workshops taking place during the day – macrame, pot painting and mini garden making.
