Brick Lane Market
What we love…
- There's only one way to spend your Sunday morning in London—hightail it to the Brick Lane market for some delicious eats to chase away that Saturday night hangover.
- The Brick Lane neighborhood in London's east end is synonymous with London's creative scene—art, street fashion, music, and some of the best ethnic foods in the city. This is a hood you could wonder over and over again and never get bored with.
- The shopping in this area is amazing. A blend of edgy inspired young designers, fantastic vintage and second-hand treasures, and some of the most interesting art in the city. There's an extremely high concentration of vintage shops in this neighborhood so if that's your style you'll fall in love with Brick Lane.
- Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday you'll find the Huge Vintage Clothing Market at the old Truman Brewery. This is where a sizable collection of the best vintage sellers across London come to show off their best.
- On Sunday the street fills with vintage, and second-hand stalls hawking everything from high-end to the utterly bizarre—which happens to be the perfect mix for the fashion obsessed.
- To see what London street fashion is all about you'll want to skip the mundane Oxford street and head over to eclectic Brick Lane for the latest and greatest in London style.
- The food is also divine the streets are lined with curry houses and this is where you can find some of the best Indian and Pakistani food in the city.
- If you're not in for a sit down meal don't fret, there's a ton of street food to be had in the market including falafel, dumplings, noodles and more. During the Sunday Market check out the food hall that has a collection of the best cheap eats in the city and covers just about any ethnic taste you can imagine.
- Although the shops on Brick Lane are open all week, the real market only happens on Sunday, so if you only have one day, that's the day you want to hit it.
- Through the week the market is much less busy so it can be a great time to check out the local shops and food in the area. Don't miss Brick Lane Coffee for an espresso and some great music. Walk next door and get in line at the Brick Lane Beigel Bake for a salted beef on rye—this place is always sporting a line up for their delicious cheap eats and 24 hour service.
