Brick Lane Market
Along with the tourists blanketing the area, the fashionistas and creative types flock to Brick Lane Market on Sundays, where they come to experience the latest fashion from new upcoming designers, rediscover second-hand clothing, and find vintage wares.
Brick Lane is in London’s hip East End neighborhood, amidst an incredible maze of cosmopolitan cafés, bars, and superb Indian restaurants. Visitors can’t forget the food area, which includes tiny food stalls from around the world: dim sum, tapas and burgers, which help make it one of London’s best street markets. There’s also a selection of home décor stalls and the occasional sample sale.
In addition to the main Sunday street market (open 10am-5pm), The Old Truman Brewery hosts several regular markets at its huge site on Brick Lane: Head to Sunday Upmarket for more than 200 stalls encompassing fashion, art and food. Sun 10am-5pm Buy jewellery, prints and accessories at Backyard Market. Sat 11am-6pm, Sun 10am-5pm
Brick Lane’s Upmarket (organised by The Truman Brewery) houses an eclectic mix of over 200 (!) lifestyle, food and accessories stalls. There’s a great sense of community trade and craftsmanship here, with a lot of local sellers and designers showcasing their work. Take the Ely’s Yard entrance and dive into the food hall there too.
