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.

Love this wee place, it's vibrant, trendy and the wee stalls are all nice and different. There's also lots of restaurants and on the outside there's lots of other shops like mac, all saints, office and Hackett.

Not too much to the market. A lot of garage sale type stuff. But we went on a food tour that started there and stopped at 8 different restaurants and bakeries. What a great area to hang out in! Great little pubs and eateries. Must...More

I love the markets here. The vibe is very hip and there's always something new to see as you look around. Try the pasta from Tre Rote for traditional Italian pasta - it's amazing!

It's a lovely market, loads of great stalls, very interesting. The only downside is that the stands are a little packed in and a bit difficult to get around!

I adored the amount of independent makers there, rather than the plethora of imported goods for sale in so many other markets. I was also happily surprised at the affordability of a lot of the merchandise.

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.
