Camden Market actually refers to the several markets that cover the northern end of Camden Town. Each market has a character of its own, from the crafts and curiosities of Camden Lock Village to the Stables Market stalls' proclivity for all things boho. And of course there's more to shopping in Camden than the markets. There's also some awesome vintage shops, like Lost 'N' Found.
