While Broadway Market is clogged with whippet-walkers, busking indie bands and buggies, Netil Market (just a gourmet loaf's throw away) is an altogether more sedate affair. It’s the brainchild of a local creative community based nearby at Netil House which has focused on giving space to local designers, and spills out of a little yard just behind the main building, with vintage homewares lined up along the pavement to welcome you in. On top of a dozen permanent stands – among them a bike mechanic, a coffee roaster, a vintage glasses shop and a florist – there are extra market stalls that move in every Saturday, selling mainly crafts, clothes and trendy homewares.
There are as many good eating opportunities as there are shopping ones; the street food stalls here are very fine indeed. The wildly successful Taiwanese restaurant Bao found its feet in Netil Market, and their permanent bao bar has a just-as permanent queue. Also worth saving space for are LemLem's afro-tacos and Morty & Bob's cheese toasties, among other things. The market's open from 11am-6pm every Saturday, and there's some seating for those who prefer not to eat on their feet.

great community of unique mix of micro shops and eateries. Brilliant evening atmosphere at the weekend.
More eclectic than Broadway and consistent traders make this our regular Saturday pit stop (we're locals so it's also the handiest place for good coffee & spicy wings)
The best little market in Hackney. Like family of friends and music with a little bit of shopping and food and beverage x
