1. Borough Market

The greatest market in all the land. Fantastically located close to tower bridge for a banging view and full of incredible specialty shops and restaurants. This, my friend, is foodie paradise. Or just paradise.

2. Columbia Road Flower Market

Did someone say flowers? Yes ma’am! If you love flowers, or being outside, or enjoying the rush of people yelling prices for flowers- then this market is for you. It gets busy, so go early if you prefer to do the whole single file shoulder to should thing. That’s the only way I’ve done it, and I still love it. There are also lovely shops with bits and bobs along the way.

3. Brick Lane

Things! All of the things! And the culture and food! You definitely get a special vibe here. It’s fun and loud and there are so many cool booths selling lots of random things, and you’re in the middle of brick lane, so you’re sure to find delicious Indian food everywhere.

4. Greenwich

Greenwich is a cool market. It’s big and it sells a ton of crafts and artisan goods, but also the occasional sweet treat or savoury sensation here and there. It’s right next to the Greenwich Meantime and a lovely lawn, so the location is pretty great too.

5. Camden

One simply can’t forget Camden market. It’s like the ugly dirty little brother of Borough Market. Some wouldn’t like that comparison but whatevs. Camden’s got great (and not so great) food to satisfy any craving. My favourite is Magic Falafel. They’ve also got quirky shops that lead to… who knows? It’s basically an underground maze that will amaze(pun!) and confuse you.
