Tuesday markets in London

Tuesday markets tend to be the regular daily food markets like Chapel Market, although Spitalfields is open, albeit with a reduced number of traders, and provides a much more civilised shopping experience than the weekends. The second and fourth Tuesday of each month also sees the gargantuan Sunbury Antiques market take place at Kempton racecourse. Well worth the early start.

Brixton Market

Shopping Markets and fairs Brixton
Good for: food
Compared to the culinary homogeneity of Borough market et al, Brixton is a sensory fiesta. The air is thick with the sizzle of jerk chicken stalls, tinny reggae riddims and yam-based price disputes while the multi-coloured hues of exotic fish displays glimmer like a whiffy rainbow.

Camden Market

Shopping Street vendors Camden Market
Good for: clothes, souvenirs
Camden’s sprawling collection of markets offers a real smörgåsbord of street culture. Wander past loitering goths and punks to join the throng of tourists, locals and random celebs fighting it out at the vast and varied selection of shops and stalls.

Chapel Street Market

Shopping Markets and fairs Islington
Good for: food, household goods
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.

Covent Garden Market

Shopping Lifestyle Covent Garden
Good for: food, crafts, antiques
Although something of a London institution, Covent Garden Market is too commercial and generally too crowded to provide a particularly characterful retail experience. However, the colonnaded 19th-century building is impressive, and occasionally some of the performers and entertainers can even be worth watching.
