This was my second time visiting in recent memory. The first was in the winter of 08, and I recall it being much better than this last one. This time we had a difficulty finding where to go, and given my wife was pregnant we didn't want to spend too much time walking. The first problems we had was getting there. The tube was closed, so we had to take a bus the remainder of the way. It wasn't exactly hard to find where to go, but more frustrating that we couldn't just get out and be in the vicinity. Given neither of us know North London, or even London for that matter it was worrying we'd get lost. We went in the morning, and didn't eat prior. We stopped at a local place and had the typical English breakfast. It was below average. We made our way to the main market area, and were surprised to see loads of food stalls selling great smelling food. If you are hungry wait to eat. Its worth it. We didn't see that many street vendors worth taking a look at. If you are interested in misc. knickknacks then this is the place for you. On my first visit I recall there being many more stalls worth taking a look at. This time it was only those located in the main market building which were worth it. Might just have been because of the roads we took to get there, or the area we were in. Overall it was a great "experience" but given you are in London there are many things I'd rather be doing. I'd go back, but not in the near future.
