Spitalfields Market says
One of London’s oldest markets, Spitalfields is now a seven-days-a-week destination. At its heart, Spitalfields ‘Traders’ Market is an uncompromising array of independent stall holders, showcasing incredible hand-crafted and hard-to-find pieces that make every trip special and memorable.

Our independent traders offer cutting-edge fashion, unique interiors, original artworks and artisan food, each with a story to tell.

Our Arts Market is the perfect collection of established and aspiring artists, gathered in one location, to display their craft. Be sure to ask about the unique stories behind each piece, for a truly memorable experience you’ll share every time you show-off your purchase.

You’ll find a great choice of family-friendly restaurants and our new Food Trucks are an amazing experience for all. We can’t get enough and bet you won’t be able to resist too!

Spitalfields’ events offer something for everyone including social dancing, open air concerts, cultural festivals, outdoor art galleries and much more.

I love Spitalfields on the weekends! The arts and craft markets is in full force and the stores rotate every weekend, so try not to fall in love with one because you'd be hard pressed to know when they will turn up again! And the food, oh the food! Those Japanese wheel cakes with matcha custard, Monty's salt beef rye sandwiches, the Pleasant Lady lamb crepes, Taiwanese dry noodles and for something possibly a little healthier the gorgeous Ethiopian vegan spread. The usual stalwarts are there for solid shopping food and clothes staples - Montezumas, Konditor and Cook, Anthropologie, Lululemon to name a few. Just go!


If you like a good old rummage around market stalls selling a hotchpotch of vintage fashion, antiques, knick-knacks, slogan tees and leather goods, head to Spitalfields on a Sunday (or quieter Thursday). The nice thing is that it’s covered over and despite the location, it’s not a complete nightmare to navigate through. Dotted around you’ll find an array of cool restaurants, shops and bars - Benefit, Creapaffaire, Blixen and Jo Malone to name a few. There’s some nice independent shops and small chains too, like Albam, Belstaff and Gandys. Nude Coffee Roasters is a must for a good brew, and my old favourite, The Diner, is a good shout for burgers & shakes to re-fuel.


"Spits" is one of my absolute most favourite places in London. Amazing airy indoor space, full of restaurants, the market and quirky shops. I've spent so much time ambling around here come rain or shine and it's an antique or vintage lover's dream spot. 1 less than 5 stars because there are too many really expensive shops popping up (due to high ground rents I'm told). Please keep those lovely independent shops and restaurants- they make the market what it is!) The market has different stalls on different days, Thursday is my favourite which I believe is jewellery and vintage knick knacks. I got an incredible pair of old photos from the 1900s in Spitalfields for 15 quid. I love them and they sit in pride of place at my house now. Always a good find down at this special market.

New designers, in between the Chinese imports worth looking out for, best day I found was Saturdays, more unique handmade stuff, bit like the old skool days of London markets.
