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 food, fashion and furniture markets.

For party music, you could check out this site: http://www.steelbandhire.com/ If you are looking for luxury, then head straight to Burlington Arcade on Piccadilly.
If you are interested in antiques markets in London take a look at Northcote Road Antiques Market. There are 30 dealers there with all sorts of antiques, vintage etc. They also take credit cards. I found them at near Clapham Junction & Clapham south. They have a website www.northcoteroadantiques.co.uk
