Brixton Village, London’s most diverse and vibrant market, is to be transformed into the perfect destination to celebrate mums of all kinds this Mother’s Day.
An array of restaurants and independent shops in the famous covered market have teamed up with Hondo Enterprises, the owner of the market, to offer exciting one-off happenings and a wide range of special discounts as a thank you for all mums for their hard work, devotion and love over the last year.
Alistair Maddox, Director of Project Development at Brixton Village and Market Row, says: “Together with all our fantastic independent restaurants and shops, we wanted to offer a huge thank you to mother figures of all kinds this Mother’s Day. So bring along your mum, someone else’s mum, or anyone who has been a maternal force for good in your life.”
The centrepiece of the Mothering Sunday celebration will see Brixton Village host a one-day-only floral pop-up shop with Dead Floral Society, the sustainable brand that favours dried and preserved natural materials to create unique and thoughtful bouquets that outlast the short-term thrill of freshly cut flowers. Mums will be able to choose from a variety of dried floral bouquets (£15 for small; £25 for medium; £35 for large), along with small posies (£9), metal hoop wreaths (£12) and recycled wine bottle vases (£5).
Cornercopia, Brixton Village’s bijou corner plant shop, will also be gifting a free spring bulb in bloom to mums with each plant purchase over £25 on Mothering Sunday. In the week leading up to Mother’s Day, Suneeta Cosmetics will offer 10% off all gifts from their range of hand-made natural skincare products, while handcrafted jeweller Full Moon Designs will be taking 10% off purchases above £20, 15% off purchases above £40 and 20% off above £50.
For those in search of a sweet treat on Mother’s Day weekend, Brixton Village’s neighbourhood deli Guzzl, renowned for its vast supply of quality products from small and passionate local producers, will be offering 10% off all chocolate for mums on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st. Specialist cake shop Sponge and Cream will be selling their cupcake bouquets and boxes of cupcakes for a special offer of £30 each, while throughout the entire month of March, guests there will also be treated to a free cupcake when buying a cappuccino or latte (Monday to Friday from 12 to 4pm) with their mum.
Among Brixton Village’s ever-evolving array of cuisines from around the world, Spanish tapas and cocktail bar Seven will be offering mums a free glass of prosecco on Mother’s Day, while authentic Mexican eatery Casa Morita will offer a 10% discount to all families dining for brunch, lunch or dinner, along with a free glass of prosecco for mums. Local Caribbean favourite Fish, Wings and Tings will also be offering 10% off meals for all mums.
