A 1km-long market with traders selling everything from food to antiques.
Allegedly the longest market in Europe, Walthamstow Market proper operates between 8am-5pm Tuesdays to Fridays and until 5.30pm on Saturdays. You can drop by to pick up fruit and veg as well as household goods and clothes. On Saturdays, you’re more likely to find extra traders selling antiques, street food and handmade goods. Arriving early is advised as some traders pack up before closing time.
Everything changes on Sundays when a farmers’ market takes over from 10am-2pm – perfect if you’re in the mood for organic eggs, artisanal cheeses, cooked sausages and fresh game when in season. Close by you’ll find Wood Street Indoor Market, a horseshoe-shaped institution brimming with antiques, old books and magazines and locals with cockney accents. Alim Kheraj

Anything you need? Including lip-smacking grub and pahnd-a-bowwl veg, toys, books, nighties, hats, gloves, shoes, electrical bits, all that jazz? Why go anywhere else?
The heart and hub of Walthamstow! without the market it would simply not be Walthamstow. The market is the epitome of diversity, anything you want, from whatever country you want, you can find it here. I hope it gets to stay for as many years as it's been here already.
Walthamstow market is central for local culture, variety and character. It has changed a lot over the years but there are still many stall holders who make Walthamstow, Walthamstow. Whether you are after some taaaay-taas *cockney accent* or a traditional East-End pie and mash, Walthamstow market is a must. #Local #TOTastemaker
I love this market take time to browse you will find big bargains. New stalls arriving all the time. Love the new Bubble Tea
I have been coming to the market since I was a kid and love it to pieces! This is a market for everyday people and not a pop up selling handmade craft junk and overpriced artisan produce - how many little ladies made out of straw do people need? You really can get everything here at great prices plus you can then pop into Manzes, the Windmill or any one of the great coffee shops - esp Riccos for some fuel and a rest before carrying on. My advise is to take a shopping bag with wheels as you will end up with a lot of stuff!
Ok for fresh fruit and veg, but there are A LOT of stalls selling the same things, and a fair amount of it is tat. There is a huge opportunity for Walthamstow Market to take advantage of the influx of 'Village' dwellers by providing more stalls selling homemade crafts and food stalls.
we love it there! very good prices of everything - especially fruit and veg. Household goods, clothes, toys etc... a typical market mix. Easy to get to - 1 min walk from the tube station.
I love WM, the atmosphere, the food, clothes really good feel of Eastend. Cheers me up every time I visit the market.
