Old Spitalfields Market

New vs Old – Old Spitalfields Market is a covered market in Spitalfields, London and has been there for over 350 years.  New Spitalfields Market is a new fruit and vegetables market in Leyton 4.5 miles from where it took its name, so it’s easy to get them confused

The original (Old Spitalfields Market) opened in 1666 when traders started springing up after the Great Fire of London and cited as “the original East London Market Place”. It was then updated in 2005 with The Spitalfields regeneration programme . Today it is a fully covered, extensive market with every food under the sun and all the stalls you’d expect from such a long-standing market steeped in history

Portobello Antiques

Portobello Market is a collection of stalls and shops along Portobello Road which has a history of being the epicentre of antiques trade in London, and perhaps one of the more famous areas of London for those in the know

Grab yourself a bargain and haggle like a pro or simply bring yourself back a memento of your visit to London without visiting one the many tourist shops selling Union Flags and Big Ben models. On Saturdays the market is fully dedicated to antiques, but you can still visit any day except Sunday

Vinegar Yard Flea

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons you can find one of the biggest flea markets in London, near London Bridge station, just south of river

From vintage clothing to porcelain, you’ll never know what bargains you’re going to find when you arrive! Seek out that diamond in the rough while taking a quick bite of street food before taking a quick sip at the Rum Shack

With a lively and young atmosphere this is arguably more of a mini entertainment complex than merely a flea stall pedalling second-hand wares! So if you’re in the area be sure to drop in and give this little treasure a look
