brick lane


London’s Brick Lane Market is a traditional flea-market affair, with a rich diversity of products and wares with everything from food, second-hand clothes (always worth a look for the retro-lovers), furniture, bric-a-brac, magazines, toiletries, sweets, electrical equipment and ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in between. The market spills across a relatively large area and several streets. The Brick Lane Market is now becoming known as a great place to pick up home accessories: from kitchen equipment, CDs, DVDs and furniture.


The Brick Lane area is home to London's most famous enclave of Indian and other asian fooderies and as such there is no shortage of snacks, delicacies and proper sit-down meals that you can try inbetween browsing through the wares on offer. There are so many to choose from with such a variety of quality, that the best advice is probably just to head to the ones with the biggest queues as the locals and regulars have long since managed to separate the wheat from the chaff!


If you're really into your bargain hunting and haggling then why not make a proper day of it? Take in all the local markets one Sunday including the Columbia Road flower market, Spitalfields market and Petticoat Lane market which are all within easy reach of Brick Lane market itself.


Open: Sun 8am-2pm
