The Broadway Market

The Broadway Market, the hub in the heart of East London has been the city’s best kept secret for years. First started in the 1890s, it’s where locals have come to sell everything from bacon and beans to antique furnishings and high-end women’s clothing. Seated on Broadway, the market runs along London Fields all the way to Regent’s Canal; chock full of restaurants, shops and indie bars.

On Saturdays from 9 to 5, famed food stalls generate big crowds and favorites include fresh cakes, stews and chorizos. At the head of the street sits Market Café, a 1950s-inspired Italian café outfitted in reclaimed furniture, antique floral wallpaper and naked floorboards that offers up every Italian sweet you can dream up. The hip market is home to F Cooke, Fish Bar, Climpson & Sons, La Bouche, Market House and The Dove. Shops along the strip include Mac Black & Vine, Black Truffle and Netil House.

More than 100 stalls line up on the weekends to serve travelers and locals alike. And what makes the stretch of shops, foods and pubs so special is the reduced costs on crowd favorites.
