Broadway Market

For east London’s fashionably attired food-lovers, there's no better Saturday destination than Broadway Market. Quaint cafés, pubs and indie music shops line the street, but the real star here is the market. The food-loving hipster's weekend hangout of choice, Broadway Market is as much about seeking out quality food as it is about just letting your hair down and soaking up the vibe – with a freshly grilled burger (from Northfield Farm) in one hand and a chilled Vietnamese coffee (from Ca Phe VN) in the other. Stalls range from the classic (sweet seasonal cupcakes from Violet) to the exotic (The Arabica Food & Spice Company do a mouthwatering range of mèze, as well as Damascene falafel wraps). Spices, cheeses, breads, rare-breed meat, luscious cakes and olives are all present – it's hard to imagine the need to go anywhere else for your weekly food shop.

The market is also popular for its vintage and new designer threads, old Vogue patterns, buttons, Ladybird books, flowers and crafts. The permanent shops and eateries are worth popping into as well – look out for the Broadway Bookshop, coffee house Climpson & Sons, haberdashery store Fabrications and florist Rebel Rebel. The neighbouring Netil Market is just around the corner on Westgate Street – you'll find more vintage clothes, food, jewellery and bric-à-brac.

I literally go to Broadway market every Saturday.  It has something for everyone: Vintage clothes, New clothes, Fresh produce, prepared produce, cooked meals, jewelry, gifts, vinyls... the list goes on.  What I love is that there's always something new/a little different and the food is absolutely amazing - especially the buttermilk chicken burger from Butchies (rated in the top 10 in London)!  It's a non-touristy version of Borough market (and less expensive).  For those who like people watching it's great to sit at one of the cafes, or even the viewing area of patio seats in the middle of the market.  Little known fact is that there are actually 2 more markets connected to Broadway: The Schoolyard market and Netil market - which I would also highly recommend.  Finally, right at the very end of the road (past the other two markets) there is a bakery called Yeast with the best sweet, soft, crunchy, pastry treats!  Go there this Saturday... (you'll probably see me)


I love coming here on a Saturday to soak up the atmosphere; busy but full of relaxed people wandering around, getting a bite to eat or people watching from the surrounding cafes (La Bouche or Little Italia are my favourites!) Definitely worth a stroll through on a lazy Saturday to watch organic families, East hipsters and tourists combined! Ali x


Excellent market. Try the bratwurst stall at lunch for an echte bratwurst experience.
