“Not what it was”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I used to visit this market 20 or so years ago when there were a lot more craft/ unique stalls. There were a lot more food stalls, standard t-shirt and souvenir. It has a lot of the charm and become much more commercialised.

“quirky market”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Lots of little stalls, things you might not find elsewhere. Quite unique. Little alley ways to explore and many shops to see.

“It's gradually succomming to the needs of tourists”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This used to be an incredible place filled with every walk of life. I started going 30 years ago when I was a student and everything was raw and edgy. Over the years the market has become gentrified. It still offers an eclectic mix of people, but the experience is more "disney" than reality now. Still, a fine place to pick up some querky gifts.

“great little bohemian corner of the city”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

camden markets are great. i enjoy going there on the weekends and browsing through the vintage stores, grabbing a bite to eat from the local traders, getting some trendy clothes or outragious shoes on the main street and having a peek at the local art and craft.
walk down the main street and you'll find many options of where to get a tattoo or a piercing if that tickles your fancy.
the canal is a lovely place to sit and eat your discounted chinese food after 6pm
easily accessible by tube and bus,
a great day out.
