Situated in Hackney, the weekly Broadway Market has been home to market traders since the 1890s. When visiting the Saturday market, you would see lines of independent shops, restaurants, cafes, and even stalls that sell fresh produce.
In recent years, Broadway Market has become home to London’s hipster and alternative culture. The ambience gathers fans of the quirky East London fashion style. For those unfamiliar with this subculture but still interested in London’s markets, another draw of the Broadway Market is the smaller crowds compared to options like Brick Lane.
Visitors should note that the Broadway Market has a ban on plastic shopping bags. However, don’t bring your own shopping bag! There is a stall that sells exclusive Broadway Market shopping totes which are great as a souvenir.
Visitors should ensure they have sufficient cash for their spending needs as the market is cash-reliant and free cashpoints are scarce.
Remember not to miss the Regents Canal when you are in the area.
Visitors can reach the Broadway Market by getting off at the London Fields Station via the Overground.
