5 Great Market Experiences in London

There are so many fantastic market experiences to be had at London’s Markets it’s hard to know where to start. Here are 5 great market experiences in London.

1. Shop Handmade at Old Spitalfields Market

Brighton Belles Makers at Old Spitalfields
Crystal Peace and Love Ring


On Saturday there was a fantastic array of handmade products
and it was a great pleasure to soak up the creative juices of the different
stall holders on show. Brighton Belles brought colour and jazz in the form of different makers who came from Brighton for the day to trade.

ILM bought: Baby Dribble Bibs 3 for £12 (right) from Ginga-Baby and this unique Peace & Love crystal ring by 
Point 618 Designs.

The much-loved African Market also made an appearance on Saturday. Great for original handmade products. The next African Market is also  great event on regularly at Old  Spitalfields Market. It holds regular events for designers & makers.


2.  Flavour Town Bakery
Bringing their gourmet cupcakes to East London, trying and buying is a MUST! It’s a sexual experience. In fact, we recommend Flavourtown Bakery so much, we bore ourselves. I have to confess to buying 18 cakes on Saturday. Sticky Toffee Pudding was to-die-for. You can buy 4 for £8 which is a bloody good deal. Join their Facebook page to claim their weekly freebie every weekend at Old Spitalfields Market.

3. Toilet Life Pop-Up Vintage Market

Public Life Vintage Market, Spitalfields E1

 We love novel market pop-ups and you don’t get a more original setting that this! Yes – it used to be a public toilet! Now better known as Public Life, it’s actually a cool little bar by night, but every Saturday you’ll find it transformed into this vintage gem. Outside the Christ Church in Spitalfields.

4. The Netil Market Experience

The Netil Market experience. Hackney, E5

If you haven’t already heard of it, you should have! This market is set behind Broadway Market in Hackney, E8 and runs every Saturday. Netil Market only comes alive after midday and attracts an uber-cool Hackney crowd. Market stalls traders can be found alongside some permanent traders who have set-up shop in Shack Alley. You’ll find a bit of vintage, jewellery, arts and crafts. Also very popular for a spot of lunch.

5. Get LUCKY!

Netil Market is where the legendary Lucky Chip found their fame and fortune. Yes, it was the most expensive market bite I’ve ever had (£25 for 2 people!), but YES it was worth it. Next-time around I’d recommend skipping the expensive coke in a bottle and stick to burger and fries at a tenner a head. You get waitress service too!
