Barking Town Shopping: 3 reviews and 6 photos
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday since 2001, there has been a lively open-air market in Barking Town Centre. During the run up to Christmas, the market takes place even more frequently. It is run by Charfleet Markets and open from 9.00am to 5.00pm with traders setting up their stalls as early as 6.00am.
This traditional East London general market caters well for the multicultural society that Barking Town has become. You can buy a wide variety of goods, including clothing, household products, food and hardware.
While other markets in the area have struggled, this one has grown to full capacity. There are at least 140 stallholders, some of whom have been there since the market started. However, daily traders are also encouraged, thus ensuring that every time the market is held, there is always something new and interesting for bargain hunters to see.
In addition to this general market, Barking Town hosts occasional French, Italian and German markets with tasty food and some unusual, hard to get hold of, products from the country concerned.
If you fancy running a stall in the market, you can find details on the website mentioned.
