Old Spitalfield Markets

Built in 1876, the Old Spitalfields Market primarily sells quirky fashion items and handmade accessories. For interested in London’s hipster scene, this is the place to be!

When visiting, you should be sure to explore their eclectic mix of different fashion styles by independent creators in the market. Even vintage finds are available, with old maps, vinyl CDs and second-hand books being great draws. And of course, being a major hipster destination, after all, visitors can expect niche aromatherapy and fragrances.

First-time visitors to the Old Spitalfields Market should take care to bring sufficient cash for their spending needs as alternative payment options may prove lacking. Furthermore, while there are some food stalls here, the restaurants provide significantly better quality. If you are very interested in London’s market style of food, however, you should instead check out the Brick Lane Market for more street food selections. You may also want to check out the most updated opening times before you arrive.

Visitors can reach the Old Spitalfields Market via the Shoreditch High Street station on the Overground, or from Liverpool Street station via the Central Line, Circle Line, Hammersmith & City Line, Metropolitan Line.
