Old Spitalfields Market represents one of the country's last bastions of consumer diversity and individuality. Home to an old-fashioned community of over 30 independent and large traders and a plethora of chic bohemian businesses, it has secured its place at the forefront of interiors, design, food and the arts - a market that truly embraces the spirit of modern London, an entrepreneurial and cultural melting pot that is ever-changing and developing without ever forgetting its historic past. As Samuel Johnson so eloquently said of London: 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." The same is very much true of Old Spitalfields Market.

It's name is a bit misleading in that it is nothing like Portobello Road or Camden Markets and it looks relatively new. However, this does not mean it isn't a great place to spend an afternoon, particularly if the weather is a bit gloomy. We...More

Ended up here after doing the street art tour. Nice setting and good range of shops and stalls for a Sunday mooch. Plenty of places to eat and drink with a mix of the familiar chains plus some more individual options.

I always experience a sense of awe at this market considering its history and then to see it in its current avatar. The food, the fashion and the vintage nostalgia would appear to be of interest to visitors only but I was delighted on this...More

Went here for London Cocktail Week so a lot of the market had been turned into the Cocktail Village. Beautiful market and area, with a good mixture of shops and market stalls. Will definitely return.

With a couple of hours to spare in London we decided to visit the market. We just happened to come across London cocktail week. The market was full of hustle, bustle and fab food and drink. There was also amazing stalls of art and retro...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
