Anything you need? Including lip-smacking grub and pahnd-a-bowwl veg, toys, books, nighties, hats, gloves, shoes, electrical bits, all that jazz? Why go anywhere else?

It may have lost some of it's East End identity but it's still the biggest street market in Europe.

The heart and hub of Walthamstow! without the market it would simply not be Walthamstow. The market is the epitome of diversity, anything you want, from whatever country you want, you can find it here. I hope it gets to stay for as many years as it's been here already.


Walthamstow market is central for local culture, variety and character. It has changed a lot over the years but there are still many stall holders who make Walthamstow, Walthamstow. Whether you are after some taaaay-taas *cockney accent* or a traditional East-End pie and mash, Walthamstow market is a must. #Local #TOTastemaker

Here's a fun fact (whether it;s still true I don't actually know) Walthamstow market is the LONGEST market in Europe ! This market is full of all sorts, some tack, some not. You will find a butcher, a baker, a fish monger along this market as well high-street brands, lovely dresses (and some not so lovely), shoes at reasonable prices, pots and pans....the list is endless almost like the market is. One thing it is not and that is 'short' of things to buy. Pun intended. I have been visiting this market since I was a child, and still love a good ol' East-end visit. Camden it is not, but here is where you will find everyday average fun folk and walk away feeling pleased with your shop.

A proper East London market, cheaper than the supermarket and definitely more interesting!


I have been coming to the market since I was a kid and love it to pieces! This is a market for everyday people and not a pop up selling handmade craft junk and overpriced artisan produce - how many little ladies made out of straw do people need? You really can get everything here at great prices plus you can then pop into Manzes, the Windmill or any one of the great coffee shops - esp Riccos for some fuel and a rest before carrying on. My advise is to take a shopping bag with wheels as you will end up with a lot of stuff!


Ok for fresh fruit and veg, but there are A LOT of stalls selling the same things, and a fair amount of it is tat. There is a huge opportunity for Walthamstow Market to take advantage of the influx of 'Village' dwellers by providing more stalls selling homemade crafts and food stalls.

we love it there! very good prices of everything - especially fruit and veg. Household goods, clothes, toys etc... a typical market mix. Easy to get to - 1 min walk from the tube station.


I love WM, the atmosphere, the food, clothes really good feel of Eastend. Cheers me up every time I visit the market.
