Market Culture: Here Comes London!

Written by Brittany Kleinman: If you find yourself in East London on a Sunday with some good walking shoes you’re in luck. This is the day for markets. The best ways to experience London’s curious mix of old and new is to start off at the Columbia Road Flower Market near the Liverpool St station. There you will find everything from vintage books, 8-tracks to ethnic imports. When your wallet needs to bargain and your eyes and stomach are hungry, head south to Spitalfields and Brick Lane Markets.

Over recent years, Spitalfields and Brick Lane’s historic streets have been re-energized with layers of colorful graffiti, artist studios, and bars. Concurrently they remain the best markets not yet consumed by tourism. These markets guarantee strange discoveries around every corner, whether that is finding your stolen bicycle for re-sale on the street, or mouth-watering Bangladeshi restaurants to douse your hunger.

At the end of Brick Lane in the Old Truman Brewery, UpMarket is a platform for designer and makers to sell direct to their customers. With over 140 stalls selling fashion, accessories, crafts, and music, UpMarket is the perfect place to culminate your Sunday afternoon.
