Leather Lane Market has been going for 400 years because it’s moved with the times. Once known for clothes and footwear (as its name acknowledges), this busy weekday market is now a street food paradise attracting hungry office workers from nearby Hatton Garden, Holborn and Farringdon. If you’re in the area and fancy falafel or vegan burritos for lunch, you should make your way here.
There are still some more traditional market stalls and the area’s retained a community feel thanks to the sterling efforts of the Friends of Leather Lane. You wouldn’t bet against this market lasting for another 400 years. Nick Levine
