London is, without a doubt, the perfect destination for shopping. But, it is in its many markets, scattered a little everywhere, that its commercial soul pulsates.
Spiralfields, Portobello, Camden, or Borough, are ideal for those who want to play safe. Famous and popular, they host an incredible number of stalls.
Broadway Market is, instead, an extraordinary market, which has little or nothing to envy to the more famous “relatives”.
Located in East London, in the heart of Hackney, this extraordinary market offers an authentic melting pot of tastes and cultures.
At Broadway Market lots of stalls await you with fresh and genuine products, authentic street food, and tasty cheeses. You will also find clothing stands, with often original and extravagant items, and London art and craft items.
In the area there are also independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes, which are also ideal for a simple break.
In our opinion, Broadway Market is one of the best markets in the capital. Absolutely to try.
