Do the Ridley Road Market challenge and beat the Supermarket's on price !

Savvy shoppers in Hackney should head straight to Ridley Road Market and fill their baskets - it's official it has the best bargain buys in the borough and beats the supermarkets on price and value.

With shopping list in hand, one Hackney resident set out to compare prices in Ridley Road Market with a local big supermarket.

It was a clear win for Hackney’s biggest street market, it came out £17.60 cheaper.

Established in 1880, Ridley Road Market has a wide range of stalls selling fruit to fashion and fish to furnishings. So not only can you get good value groceries, fresh fish or meat, you can also try out international street food, get your summer wardrobe sorted or even buy a new rug to take home!
