London markets by day

Monday

The tourists and weekend amblers have cleared; Monday's your chance to get some serious market shopping in. Early (carnivorous) birds will find edible bargains at Smithfield, but if your bleary eyes can't take the sight of dawn you may prefer to get lunch on Leather Lane or Berwick Street.

Tuesday

Tuesday markets tend to be the regular daily food markets like Chapel Market, although Spitalfields is open, albeit with a reduced number of traders, and provides a much more civilised shopping experience than the weekend's. The second and fourth Tuesday of each month also sees the gargantuan Sunbury Antiques market take place at Kempton racecourse. Well worth the early start.

Wednesday

Wednesdays are a great day to try out some of London's most authentic markets – from Shepherd's Bush in the west, to Walthamstow in the east. Stock up on all of your fruit and veg for the week, as well as bits and pieces like cheap mobile phone covers, novelty ashtrays and reproduction football kits.

Thursday

Thursday is a great day to call in on Spitalfields Market, which hosts a weekly antiques and vintage market that's normally quiet and pleasant to browse. There is a wide choice of daily fruit and veg markets across the capital too – with wares sold by bellowing traders and offering great value.

Friday

Friday is the best day to visit Portobello market – it's far quieter than Saturday, and is the perfect opportunity to snap up the best vintage and indie fashion buys and thrift purchases before the crowds descend at the weekend. There are also food and clothing markets across the capital – a great way to kick off the weekend's shopping early.

Saturday

Get down to a good day's shopping at London's Saturday markets, which can provide you with everything from locally sourced vegan meals to vintage fur jackets. If you need a little respite from the trials of Oxford Street, Cabbages and Frocks is a delightfully serene affair, and if you're more interested in being seen than buying stuff, head east and spend a few hours floating around Broadway Market and Netil Market.

Sunday

The one day of the week when you can do nothing but potter without a trace of remorse, Sundays are perfect for exploring a market or two. Gather armfuls of affordable flowers on Columbia Road, or look for gourmet lunch ingredients at the Ally Pally or Marylebone farmers markets.

There's a mistake in the link to Monday's markets. It doesn't open it properly. Good job, anyway :)
