London is, without a doubt, the perfect destination for shopping. But, it is in its many markets, scattered almost everywhere, which pulsates its commercial soul.
Spiralfields, Portobello, Camden, or Borough, are ideal for those who want to be on the safe side. Famous and popular, they host an incredible number of stalls.
Broadway Market is, instead, an extraordinary market, which has little or nothing to envy 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, there are plenty of stalls selling 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 objects.
In the area there are also independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes, ideal for a simple break.
In our opinion, Broadway Market is one of the best markets in the capital. Absolutely to try.
