Camden market A Dandy in Aspic
Camden’s sprawling collection of markets offers a real smörgåsbord of street culture. Wander past loitering goths and punks to join the throng of tourists, locals and random celebs fighting it out at the vast and varied selection of shops and stalls. Saturdays are not for the faint-hearted – crowds craving lava lamps, skull rings, fashion, interiors, music and vintage swarm about. To avoid the rough and tumble visit on a weekday, though weekends are better for variety and atmosphere. Camden Market proper (on the junction with Buck Street) is the place for cheapo jeans, T-shirts and accessories and the same goes for Canal Market, now happily reopened after being destroyed by a fire in February 2008. Down the road, a multimillion-pound redevelopment project is in the midst of transforming the once boho Stables Market into something a little more sterile. Still, vintage threads can still be found here alongside crafts, antiques and the now-sprawling Proud gallery and bar. Next door at the pleasant, waterside Camden Lock you’ll find everything from corsets and children’s clothes to Japanese tableware and multicultural food stalls.

This place was such a great find if you want to get away from the touristy spots – although it’s becoming increasingly so. If you’re a fan of big markets both food and shopping, this is the place for you. You’ll get an assortment of food vendors (all cuisines) and shopping from touristy trinkets to leather goods – there really is something for everyone!
The market captures a very large area so you can easily spend 3-4 hours here. I recommend doing lunch at one of the casual places and finding a table or seating area in the area. There is a tube station close by so it’s only a few steps away!
If you are looking for a bit of funk, look no further. Whether you want to update your wardrobe,have a vegan free milkshake, or buy some psychedelic art, Camden Market is the place for you. Notable attractions are Cyberpunk (the three story rave store), the club Proud Camden, and the Amy Winehouse statue.
You are guaranteed to get lost in this labyrinth of Punk, Mod, Rocker jungle.
Perfect way to spend your Sunday. Go to Camden Town and stroll around this adorable, quirky town. Make sure you don't get lost in all the aisles, because I bet you will not remember what you have already seen or not. There are some hidden, little gems in and around the Market. For example there is a beautiful shop with all lace clothing in Camden, which was great to do some shopping. We ended our Sunday stroll with a dessert from one of the countless food stands. Although it gets really crowdy on a Sunday sometimes..
What an infusion of people, products, food and back alley sales. The vendors here have permanent stalls so there products are top quality and their service savvy. After looking around and trying to not spend all your money you then stumble across the various food stalls that offer everything from burritos to Korean food to falafels, you name it. You can really lose yourself in here, but do just that. Go with the flow and enjoy the vibe.
The twisting warren is the closest thing we have to a souk in London, and brings back so many memories of being a teenager. As an adult now, it's slightly lost some of its charm - you see the same old tat time and time again, but there are still some beautiful vintage gems and antiques, you just need to put in the leg work. Definitely worth a visit - just be warned for the crowds and the tat!
It's vibrant location where everyone will find something for their liking. Whenever it's vintage clothing, records or food 😄
I love Camden Market. This is the market of teenage dreams. A little rebellious spirit in every stall, incredible food and pulsing music from a hippie store. You'll find so many incredible delights. It always feels like a treasure hunt when i step into Camden Market. GO! #TOT
I try to get to Camden Market everytime I am in London. There is always something new and exciting to discover! And the diversity in street culture, shops and visitors is simply amazing, just look at this panorama showing every shop along the east side of Camden High Street: http://panoramastreetline.com/camden-market-london-united-kingdom-P1871
