Petticoat Lane Market

Time Out says

East End institution with a chequered history.

There’s a reason why Petticoat Lane Market is no longer on Petticoat Lane and that’s because Petticoat Lane no longer exists. Thanks to the prudish sensibilities of the Victorian era that found undergarments uncouth, the street was renamed Middlesex Street in 1846.

There are two markets here which operate at different times of the week. From Monday to Saturday, the market is condensed and relegated to Wentworth Street, Bell Lane and Goulston Street, selling homeware, toiletries, batteries, plus other bits and bobs, between 8am-4pm. The market spreads to Middlesex Street and the surrounding area on Sundays, operating between 9am-2pm. Here you’ll find all of the above plus extra street food vendors, more clothing and leather goods. There are also shops selling fabrics hidden behind the stalls. Alim Kheraj
