Shopping Information
What Makes It Special
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.

Good sized market with loads of stalls and food options surrounded by classy shops - something for everyone. Less tatt than the cheap part of convent garden and easier to get around. Well worth a trip but not too early. Stalls were only just setting...More

I find it fascinating just exploring in and around Spittalfields. Intetesting restauraunts and food stalls and on Thursdays there is a great flea market/antiques market. The side streets are interesting too but it does get busy around lunch time mid week.

This East London market did not disappoint, and stacks up with the more well-known markets at Camden and Portobello Road. While not as large, the covered market area had plenty of interesting vendors and lots of mouth-watering food to tempt us as we strolled the...More

My wife is a keen gemstone and jewellery buyer who hopes to get quality stuff from the markets at below high street shop prices. She couldn't find any interesting or worthwhile things to buy here. The market gives you the feel that it's heavily corporatised...More

We stumbled upon this to and from our Jack the Ripper Tour. Great views from the top level. Nice shops.

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.

Hi, I think this market is always busy, obviously, you have to take into account that this Sunday is part of Easter Break. From my experience, this place is always buzzing. But, it is difficult to say about this Sunday, as... More
