    Great food
    Food options were amazing, we chose well and everyone else seemed happy too. It was overwhelmingly busy though! The non-food stalls weren’t great, lots of similar tourist stuff. Some little gems amongst them.

    A Very Worthwhile Place to Shop
    This is an amazing market. it's huge. We were in the area called the STalls (close to the Chalk Farm Road Tube station, not the Camden market station). We had a fabulous lunch at the M'eat the Vegan Resatuant there. One of our party is vegan so we decided to "spoil" here and we all ate vegan. It was delicious. The boys had tacos, we had "fish" and chips and a huge delicious salad. I highly recommend this restaurant. then we went to severla store. The best was "Psylo" Fashion, store #49. The two salesladies were exremely helpful, the clothese are just fabulous and our boys were able to get really special clothes. This is a MUST place to go to.

    The atmosphere!
    For me it is about the atmosphere. I am not one for grunge and funky styles but the market has a cool atmosphere and worth a browse. There are some boutique arts and crafts, as well as jewellery and not to mention the food! Best to do when it isn't raining. Parts of the market are covered but still try and do it on a dry day. Saturday is the best day. Mind bags as sometimes there are a few stray characters but nothing unsafe. Not the cleanest especially outside but fine otherwise.

    A fascinating, great place to go
    My friend and I made a bee line for Camden, having arrived at Euston which is nearby. He’d been before and recommended it. I am not a great browser / shopper but found the whole friendly hustle and bustle, the tiny stalls tucked away in nooks and crannies, the vast choice of food tastes available, your normal high street chains along with the boats on the canal absolutely super. It’s certainly somewhere I may return to in the future and recommend a visit if you have an hour or more to kill and are close by.

    An Instagramer’s Haven!
    A disused warehouse used to stand here until 1974. Previously the Pickford Stables were also located here. It was the property of Charles Pratt, the first Earl of Camden, he decided to develop this area into a commercial enterprise. 16 stalls were created on this area and were rented out to independent local traders, who could hold weekend shops there. Now there are roughly 1000 stores. This is a market which is an eclectic mix of different things. You can find art and craft knickknacks , souvenirs, vintage clothing and club wear here. There is a beautiful umbrella alley with pink and yellow parasols hung upside down as a roof. It is a very Instagramable place. As for the food you are really spoilt for choice. To name a few there are Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Portuguese, Indian, Korean food options available. You can also get fast food and desserts here. There are some lovely book shops in this market. There is is a fantastic little candy shop called Hensel and Gretel, which is wonderfully designed. You see life-size statues of various pop figures and animals in this lovely market.

    Crazy must do!
    Crazy combination of good food and a lot of overpriced small stores located in a circus of different people. A must to visit when in London. Couple have eaten all week for a reasonable price🇳🇴 But prices are too high for such market.

    You must visit here
    This was a first visit for my 16 year old grandson and he loved it. We visited many years ago but failed to dive deep into the market. What a fantastic place. A must to visit

    Go… you won’t regret it x
    Come to Camden food market each time I come to London. Absolutely love it. Loads of food stalls and independent shops. Food there for everyone. 100% reccomend the Mac Factory for a tub of Mac and cheese and also the Magic Juice place that does smoothies and gives out tester samples. 2 min walk from tube station as well. Xx

    Amazing for food but busy
    Camden food market is amazing to try a variety of different food stalls. Upon entry in Camden, you walk on the main road that has lots of different food shops but also fake designer clothes shop. There is a lot of hustle and bustle with lots of people and stalls. Like with many tourist attractions places, there are always people stopping you and asking you to purchase items from them. I gentleman told us that he made a CD and proceeded to give us a copy. He then asked us to make a donation and also took payment by card so be careful not to stop or take anything from anyone as it is not free. The food market itself can be quite difficult to navigate as there are a lot of stalls and it can become difficult to see where you begin and where to end. The market appears to be busy quite often, and when we attended, this was certainly the case. we struggled to find somewhere to sit and eat due to the large amount of people. It is still worth attending the market and to try the different foods and experience Camden market. Please note the toilets are mixed therefore both males and females use the toilets at the market. They are also very dirty.

Blimey, what on Earth has happened to the place?? I used to visit here a lot with friends around 25 years ago. The High Street now has wall-to-wall shops selling key ring landfill cr@p. As for The Market, well it used to hip and cool with loads of second hand clothes and furniture stalls in the old stable courtyard and really cheap world food to be enjoyed on the move. Now all the stalls are in purpose built pods, the rent of which has pushed prices through the roof. Maybe a victim of the modern Health & Safety culture or just plain greed? Who knows.
But, trust me on this one; it is a shadow of its former self and no longer has the same chilled vibe. Shame.

Was OK for a day out, though personally I don’t think I would want to go again. I found it all very expensive, though my daughter liked the Jeans shop where you could pick up a pair of Levi’s for £15. Food was a bit limited, I am on a low carb diet so can’t have pasta, rice, potatoes or bread, so didn’t have anything to eat! Whilst we were there we took a very nice trip down the canal on The Music Boat, Where we were serenaded by an excellent singer who played his guitar. A lovely 45 minute trip.

Was not impressed, stalls are mostly schlocky stuff you can buy anywhere. There are a lot of eateries but most of the seating is outside. We visited on a weekday in January and it was so crowded I would not want to come on a Saturday. Not sure what all the hype is about.

Massive, so much to see and so much to do we went on a Friday morning was very busy lots of people around.

Plenty to buy and to eat and a great day out, lots of nooks and you might find yourself doubling back on yourself

Some beautiful artwork on the older buildings too.

Definitely recommend for a good day out for any budget.

Disappointed to be honest, I was expected a old style market with good deals in. Most markets are fixed buildings with very over priced item for sale. I didn’t actually seen anyone buy anything.

Would return for the atmosphere of the area but not the markets

Really concerned to see the behaviour of food sellers in the Asian alley section of Camden Market today.

We are in the middle of a pandemic, locked-down in tier 4 and I saw vendors on two different stalls holding out food with tongs for passers by to taste!

This is crazy. This virus as we know can spread from hand to hand from person to person and yet they are behaving recklessly! Anybody can touch the serving tongs with their hands and many many people pass through this market daily.

These same tongs no doubt go back into the cooked food trays and serving containers cross contaminating the meals being served. This is outrageous!

Camden Market is a major public space in London and needs to stop all sampling/tastings immediately!
They must take their responsibility seriously to control the spread of this virus and the misery it is causing to everyone's lives.

Dissapointing Camden Market!

I went there with a friend 2 weeks ago, I thought most of the stalls at the market were tacky, expensive and for tourists from other countries. I enjoyed the thai food in the food stalls and the cookie dough stall called Naked Dough. The vagina museum was also interesting. I'm in no rush to go back though.

Offers various types of international cuisine via food trucks, eclectic shops and outdoor vendors, and great people watching. We were looking for concert shirts to bring back home and one of our tour guides recommended that we go. It didn't disappoint!

10 minutes on the underground from the city centre is Camden Town and Market. The area is very Hip and Bohemian. Lots of street art (tasteful, not tags or graffiti). The market itself wasa good size with so many warrens and quirky stalls, sellers etc. It can be a pick pockets paradise given the narrow alleys and large crowds but other than that, the whole vibe is a relaxed one.

There is lots to see and a few eateries. CyberDog is worth a visit (you will know when you have found it) lol.

I am not sure what I expected but left feeling that I had "done" it but was not memorable. Don't think I would return but if you have a travel pass and a spare hour, get yourself along :)
