What a great place to go on a Sunday to see a great range of crafts and artisan foods. Have a taste of something unique. The range of handcrafted items on sale were beautiful and very well made.

Lots of street food vendors offering an international assortment of reasonably priced food, but other than that not much else. A series of overpriced clothing and jewellery stalls selling much the same kind of stuff. A highlight was the music stall selling old vinyl LP’s...More

Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area around Shoreditch or want something to do which is away from the centre. Cool, quirky market. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and it was fairly quiet. Mainly jewellery, leather goods and clothing, but I guess...More

I have been visiting the market for many years and it is interesting to see socialism changing the market too. In my memory, there were far more interesting vendors before. Now it is mostly overpriced and not at all bric-a-brac. However, it is worth visiting...More

Didn't know the place existed, we came across it after visiting Dennis Severs House in Folgate St, a few streets away. A very vibrant market with lots of stalls to view and lots of places to eat.

It was ok, but not exactly what I expected. There were a lot of overpriced clothes in stall and bric-a-brac. There were plenty of places to eat, and some stalls selling chocolates, donuts and that sort of thing. I was hoping there would be more...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.
