We thought it would be a good idea to explore East London Markets and check out that they offered.

    Hackney flea market

    Hackney Flea market opens once a month in Stock Newington on Church street. It is your one-stop market for everything vintage, antiquities, fabrics and much more. What we loved it that it also has homemade food stands with live music beating away. It also hosts various events and has a DIY shop which stocks products made by the community.

    One of the most popular markets in East London and is a hot spot for locals and visitors alike. It is your one-stop shop for culture, art, music and food and is open every day.

    Old Spitalfields Market

    One of my favourite markets, its closest station is Liverpool Street and is open 7-days a week. We love just how instagrammable old *Spitalfields is and the variety it offers. At this market, you can find anything from clothes to food and artwork. 

    Netil Market

    This market is located near London fields station and is the creation of the local community. It opens throughout the week but is much quieter than other markets in East London. At this market you can find vintage fashions, street food as well as crafty stalls from permanent traders.

    The East London Markets

    Broadway Market

    Broadway market has earned itself a reputation as the gourmet central of all food markets in London. Located near London Bridge and not too far from the Netil market, its the place to be. Its been home to traders since 1890s and was relaunched back in 2004 plus opens every Saturday.

    All of these markets are unique and absolutely make the face of East London. It hasn’t always had the best reputation but over the years, it has been the place to be. One of our favourite hotels, The East London hotel is located there.
