Borough Market

Borough Market is rich with history, but it remains as relevant now as it has ever been. As London’s oldest food market, it has been serving the people of Southwark for 1,000 years, and that extraordinary heritage is an important part of its appeal.

Today—it is a dynamic, ever-changing institution; a participant in the wider debates around what we eat and where it comes from; a place where food is talked about almost as enthusiastically as it is consumed.
First and foremost, though, it is a source of genuinely exceptional produce. Many of the Market’s stallholders are themselves producers: the farmer who reared the animal, the fisherman who caught the fish, the baker who baked the bread. Other traders have built their reputations on seeking out small-scale artisan producers and bringing their wares to Borough. Together, the Market’s stalls, shops and restaurants reflect London’s status as a truly global city, with traditional British produce sitting alongside regional specialities from around the world.
That’s why today, not only is it UK’s best-known — it’s one of the most famous food markets in the world. Open: Mon-Thur 10am-5pm, Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 8am-5pm.

Open since 1974, Camden Market is a diverse community of creative sellers street food traders and independent stores next to the Regent’s Canal Open everyday with 1,000 places to shop, eat, drink and dance in our historic central London location.
Before Camden Market was born, gin was Camden’s biggest industry. It was transported all over the world from the Regent’s Canal. The 1970s signaled the end of Camden’s industrial heritage and the start of the Market.
Camden Market started off as a small arts and crafts fair in the backyard of Dingwalls. Originally it was temporary and only open on Sundays, however its popularity grew fast.

In the 1960s, legendary gigs at Dingwalls and the Roundhouse changed London’s music scene forever, bringing rock and punk to London. These venues were beloved by counter culture bands, including The Clash, The Sex Pistols and Blondie.
As Camden’s music industry boomed, alternative fashion came with it. Young designers started experimenting with new looks and selling them on market stalls where mods, rockers, punks and bohemians gathered to hang out and shop.
Today Camden Market is the largest market in London, home to rock music, and street fashion.
Camden Lock Place NW1 8AF Open: Mon-Sun 10am-6pm. For more info Camden Market
