?is one of the oldest surviving marrkets in Britain. It focuses on cheap clothing ? some are bad far eastern imitations, but some are a real bargain. Some other items are also sold, for example household articles or CDs. Many vendors are of foreign origin, creating a multi-ethnical atmosphere on the market. This is also reflected on food stalls, where you can get quite everything from jellied eels and hot dogs to halal and kosher food. The market gained a large popularity among tourists during the last few years, so that also London souvenir stalls can be found on this markets. All in all, it?s a place I would recommend to get a small East London experience.

The best time to visit is on Sunday morning, when it reaches its largest size. If you are in a market mood, also visit some nearby markets like Columbia Road Flower Market or Brick Lane Market. Those markets are just a short walk away. For opening times, please check the webpage below.
