Though not everyone is a fan of the recent redevelopment of Spitalfields (particularly those pushed out by the rising rents), the market has been afforded a new lease of life. The East End stalwart now comprises the refurbished 1887 covered market and the adjacent modern shopping precinct. Around the edge of Old Spitalfields Market, enthusiastic stallholders sell grub alongside big hitters Leon, Canteen and Giraffe while Old Spitalfields itself is now playing host to The Real Greek among other (arguably irksome) chain restaurants. Sundays, particularly during the festive season, are busiest (withdraw money before you arrive or you face a long, and often fruitless, cash machine queue), though the market is now open on Saturdays, relieving some of the pressure. Browsing options include creations by up-and-coming designers, vintage clobber, crafts, jewellery, books, sheepskin rugs and Brazilian flip flops. Thursdays are dedicated to antiques and vintage, Fridays to fashion and art.

Take a wander down to the market on a Saturday, its nice to get there before midday to avoid the rush. Depending on the time of the month you can find different stalls - from a dedicated record/music market to Vintage. There is something for everyone here. Sit down, have a coffee and relax and people watch. Also check out some of the local pubs dotted around the Market. It makes a nice change than visiting the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street.
