"camden market" Camden Market Tip by miromi

Camden Market, London: 53 reviews and 97 photos

the market is a spectacle in itself, but the best shops are located inside the bridge in the vicinity of the cyberdog store. it's a great place to get all your subcultural accoutrements, but i found most of the clothes rather weak--the same cheap yet overpriced knock-off brands repeated over and over again and found everywhere in the city. it was refreshing to find many stalls offering the latest japanese street fashions, but the average european or american woman is too stocky and large for them.

What to buy: the most killer deals are the doc marten shoe stalls, where you can pick up wacky and obscure styles of this line for £10-20. cheap and garish accessories are also nice.

What to pay: most clothes are priced under £40, but the quality is so awful that i find this too high.
