London markets

Your guide to the best markets in north, south, east and west London

Columbia Road Flower Market Cut Flower Stall

There’s no more colourful way to shop in London than by sampling its many markets. For those that take food seriously, all corners of the capital boast their own farmers’ markets, bringing locally grown produce to the table, while specialised markets like Columbia Road’s famous flower market packs a Victorian cobbled street with bargain blooms every Sunday.

As well as these more fashionable fairs, the capital has stubbornly retained many of its authentic ‘Albert Square’ style markets, selling no nonsense fruit and veg, bric-à-brac and cheap clothing. Here’s our comprehensive guide to the capital’s foodfashion and furniture markets.

If you can't make it to one (or want a behind-the-scenes peek), we started the Street Market Podcast where we interview traders from street markets in London and around the world.


You can listen here: http://www.streetmarketpodcast.com/


We have an episode on Covent Garden's Brewers Market (beer and mead) where we've interviewed the brewers to ask about their recipes, how to taste beer and the hardest parts of starting up your own brewery.  This episode is here: http://www.streetmarketpodcast.com/4-brewers-market/


And we've gone to Maltby Street where we interviewed traders about how to make the perfect cup of coffee and what it's like to run a market stall when you're desperately hungover.  Here's the episode: http://www.streetmarketpodcast.com/3-community-at-maltby-street-market/


If you have any suggestions on future markets, let us know!  Twitter: @streetmarketpod  


We also have loads of pictures from the markets we've been to: http://www.streetmarketpodcast.com/pictures/



Happy listening!
