Old Spitalfields Market, London

4.2
#11 of 413 in Shopping in London
There has been a market on the site of Old Spitalfields Market since 1638, when King Charles I gave a license for flesh, fowl, and roots to be sold there. Today, Old Spitalfields is one of London’s top markets, offering antiques, clothes, organic food, artwork, and vinyl records. It’s particularly recognized as a place for young designers to showcase their work, and is considered very fashionable. As it’s a covered market, you don’t need to worry about rain. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from shopping, visit one of the stalls selling food, or one of the restaurants and cafes also in the covered area.

  • Old Spitalfields Market has a fascinating history and interior. A fabulous place for interesting independent market stalls, hand crafts, clothes, jewellery, good coffee, some amazing fresh food from across the world. Some great music events here too and a short walk from Liverpool street tube. Well worth a visit.
  • There's always some wonderful bits and pieces to find there and there is a great selection of food shops..... I'm on a diet ATM and went to a bespoke salad bar called chopped..... Overall its a really nice part of London and if u want to know more about the area go to a site called London walks I went on a jack the ripper one that started at spitalfields. Well worth a visit
