An absolute treasure trove of bits and bobs that you never even thought you would need. A tonne of vintage garms and chic threads too. Prices can get a little steep for certain items, but just haggle, haggle, haggle! When you're done shopping, make sure you check out some of the food stalls in the market - and don't forget your camden card if you're local - you can grab a discount.


When I lived in North London I used to head to the Stables market once a month or so for a rebalance via a good rummage around the vintage clothes, and always appreciated living so close to such a London institution. Walk past the steampunk non-vintage 'vintage' stuff and go straight down the stairs to the half-underground shops for an organised and well-curated selection of cut-off shorts, cowboy boots, sequinned dresses, denim jackets, rock'n'roll t-shirts and trench coats. It can be a bit of a scene, so have fun and dress in your best vintage threads (I once got snapped by a street style photographer) and you'll see plenty of the best examples of goth and punk inspired outfits from the Camden town of old. If you need a break, head down to the Stables Market Cafe for a £1 cup of tea and a sit down.


If you're in Camden, you might as well walk around the Stables Market for a bit. It's not the most exciting part of Camden, but if you're looking for strange knick knacks this side of London, this is the place for you. You might just find a steal, or a kitschy gift for a friend! (or enemy)


Camden has become incredibly touristic, any Londoner could be able to tell you that. It is obvious by the amount of shops that are selling the exact same t-shirts and beanies, with phrases on them that say things along the lines of 'My girlfriend went to London and all she got me was this shirt'. It really is a touristic dream. Nevertheless Camden hasn't lost it's charm, especially the stables. It's still interesting to walk around as there are vendors who haven't caved to the tourists and continue selling unique merchandise. But what makes camden worth is that despite everything there is always something new to see, something new to eat, something new to hear, or something new to do.
