If the bellowing, clattering traders selling a good mix of fruit, veg and tat aren’t Albert Square enough for you, then the frequent presence of a real life ‘EastEnders’ actor on the street might be – it’s not unusual to see locals Martin Fowler or Cindy Beale here picking their way through the apples and pears (“TWO PAND A PAAAAND”). Chapel Market has no airs and graces despite the Islington area that surrounds it having shot up in desirability over the past decade. The stalls that don’t sell unexotic but good quality fresh produce tend to sell the kind of thing that Woolworths once had a monopoly on – crap Christmas cards, big packets of batteries and nasty puffa jackets. There are some hot food stands (look out for the decent fat burgers half way down) and a teeny French cheese stall outside Marks and Spencer with a good selection of imported fromages. If you prefer your markets a little more Borough, then come on a Sunday, when the Islington farmers’ market is held here with the usual selection of local, organic and artichoke. Get cash before you come – the only ATMs on the street are pay per withdrawal ones.

Ah maaaan, I miss Chapel Market ... I live near Portobello Market now which is obviously much bigger and all kinds of varied, but there's something about Chapel Market that holds such a special place in my heart, honestly it's probably just markets in general that get me going and Chapel just was lucky enough to be the chosen one.


You can have your phone fixed, buy some army surplus, enjoy an al fresco Maccy's and all to the soundtrack of some of the most obscure music you're likely to ever hear from the stall outside Costa.

Smokin' Aces at the far end of the market offers up some truly delicious smokey and pulled and BBQed meats, that are really not to be missed.


Fancy a pair of Kelvin Clans, Chapel Markets got you covered! Perhaps a coconut, chapel market! All the medjool dates you can squish into a brown paper bag for £2.20 to the pound (paaa'nd), Chapel. Market! you catch my drift. There was a piece in TO not too long ago about markets in London and I think maybe Chapel Market is up there with the best of them.


If you're in Angel and craving some fresh fish from the man in a fish van, and to satisfy your needs for fake laser guns then you're only headed to one place ...

All the usual farmers market stalls that are great but the location here is very handy too as it's so close to all sorts of buses and Angel tube station. And there's lots of nearby cafes and restaurants for a little rest afterwards!
