Had a nice time shopping and having lunch at a great small Italian restaurant. It was the weekend before Christmas and they were serving mulled wine which was so nice on that chilly day. There was a group playing music in the open air restaurant near in the center. Very nice experience.

Great venue and enjoyed interacting with the vendors and buying some nice goods but some phone or other vendor had a "free coffee" cart set up on the street... and like lemmings, the UK people politely cued behind it to get their free coffee.... BLOCKING THE ENTIRE FREAKING STREET! And, hey, it's really busy this time of year. One of... More

Great place to browse the stalls of arts and crafts and buy original gifts, enjoy the performers, watch people and get yourself wrapped up in the lively ambiance.

Fruit & Vegetables are sold here mainly for wholesale and it's very early opening hours put many people off visiting... More

I am only giving this market a star because I can't give them zero, which is what it deserves. I went to the market last night with a group of friends, thinking it would be an interesting, fun thing to do. A recent trip to Spitalfields had resulted in lots of bargains bought in a friendly atmosphere and we were... More
