Old Spitalfields Market

For a unique shopping experience, offering products and produce from a wide range of industries, a trip to Old Spitalfields market is a must. You'll find the markets on Lamb Street – around a five minute stroll from Liverpool Street Station – with local traders setting out their stalls every day of the week.

The latter end of the week brings with it a differing daily theme, covering the likes of antiques and everything vintage on a Thursday, to the fashion and art Fridays, and ever-changing specialist markets on Saturdays. If you're wanting to browse a bit of everything though, check out the general markets running from Sunday to Wednesday.

For any music lovers, Old Spitalfields holds its very own record fair where you can flick through endless vinyls, CDs and cassettes on the first and third Friday of the month – the next taking place on December 4th.

Famed for its classic and contemporary styles, get some retail therapy whilst browsing stalls from Marvin Browne, Edy and Bridge, Clou and many more. Or if you are starting to feel a tad peckish, try out the beautifully cuisines of Poppies Fish N Chips, Café Caribbean and Blecker St. Burger.

Old Spitalfields is renowned for putting on fantastic events too, with the First Thursdays Christmas Night Market kicking off on December 3rd. Engross yourself in the spirit of Christmas, as the market turns on its festive lights to mark the start of the yuletide celebrations. Make sure you try out one of the seasonal beverages on offer from Blixen and The Ten Bells too.

As well as offering incredible discounts, Dr Martens will be hosting an in-store gig to keep the celebrations going, and Ethos will be launching their winter terrace, ahead of their grand opening in January.

Truly a London gem – Old Spitalfields market is a must visit this festive season.
