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.
