“Great View of Local Life in the Heart of the CIty”
Reviewed May 7, 2011

While wondering around the City on my own one day using the fabulous map system now posted on most corners throughout London (can't rave enough about this excellent) idea, I followed the signs and came to this fabulous street market as the stall owners were beginning to set up for the day. Note: the market is technically in Islington, nearest to Moorgate or Barbican Tube stations.

Sat and had a wonderfully tasty and inexpensive breakfast outside at the Market Cafe under sunny skies. Described as a traditional workers cafe, the food was fresh and they didn't mind my request for substitutions. Best of all, the lady serving me was extremely friendly as were the locals who popped in for breakfast. There are several other restaurant/pub/cafe options on the street.

The market offers a variety of vendors selling everything from pies, artisan breads, olive oils, books, flowers, tasty take-aways, clothing and bric-a-brac.

Technically the stalls open from 11 to 3 each weekday, although some open earlier, but this makes a great stop on a trek through this part of the city.
