BEST LONDON MARKETSDate: 24 Apr 2017
OLD SPITALFIELDS MARKET
Antiques & Flea Market is on Thursdays in E1 and is a very popular mid-week market. Here you’ll find eccentric curiosities and people. You can spend your whole afternoon indulging in the bizarre, weird and wonderful here. There is a whole lot on offer, with plenty of twentieth century design, chabby chic, taxonomy, theatrical pieces, toys, jewellery, vintage clothing and accessories.
Whether you visit for the day or on your lunch break you won’t be disappointed.
Broadway is less a market but more of a meeting point for young men with fetching moustaches and mysterious looking girls armed with a weekend supplement and a freshly roasted brew.
It’s a hub for East End fashion, crafts and creativity, but it’s the quality of the produce, well-tailored vintage clothes and stylish boutiques that make it worth your weekend meander.
COLUMBIA ROAD FLOWER MARKET
If seeing over a 1,000 varieties of exotic flowers and plants does not excite you, then a clustering of a few different east London accents calling out ‘3 for a fiver!’ should do the trick.
Despite building a reputation as a bit of a tourist trap, Columbia Road Flower Market is bustling with bright-eyed locals and an abundance of all things beautiful, a great place to bring your mom if she’s visiting town on a Sunday.
MALTBY STREET MARKET
An unlikely south-east London backwater had quickly became a popular weekend destination. Featuring a mash up of decorative antiques and materials giving Maltby Street it's unique ambiance.
