What Makes It Special
Open 7 days a week, it is the perfect antidote to the high street. We bring together small producers with local creatives and artisans, original independent retailers and a few well-known brands under one historic roof. Our daily market is home to a selection of carefully chosen traders, craftsmen, artists and artisans alike, picked for the quality of their product, and the stories they have to tell. We are interested in how things are designed, the creative process and the interesting people who produce the products you’ll find here. We champion quality and responsibly sourced products and we assess each operator individually on this basis. In the centre of the market floor you will find our ten fully fitted kitchens where we showcase exceptional contemporary and authentic cooking. We are proud to offer new levels of quality and variety in the dishes prepared by our chefs and operators, many of whom have already established great

I must offer up-front the fact that I am *not* a shopper. If I was here to shop my rating would be much higher. We visited Spitalfield’s Market and had to remind Keira that we were on a tour (called "London Detours"), not a shopping...More

Fun place. It was neatly layed out for easy viewing of the goods and merchandise. Some items were priced higher than should be expected in that kind of venue, but there plenty of reasonably priced items as well.

We hit most of the big London markets and this was our favorite. The goods are mostly unique and of better quality - not the usual T-shirts and cell phone case junk. I bought a stunning, well made leather purse, three pretty spring scarves, earrings,...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.
