Hackney markets celebrate National Love Your Market Fortnight
With its wealth of bustling markets, Hackney is the place to celebrate national, Love Your Market Fortnight, May 14 to 28.
Hackney’s vast array of popular street markets offer shoppers a huge variety of goods, from fresh food to vintage clothes.
Each of the borough’s markets has a distinctive atmosphere, ranging from Ridley Road’s international flavour, Broadway Market’s chic, and Hoxton Street’s traditional fare.
They offer residents and visitors alike a unique opportunity to sample Hackney’s vibrant multicultural character as well as the chance to support local businesses.
The market, located at the Southern end of London Fields Park, takes place every Saturday and draws big crowds locally as well as from all around London.
With more than 100 stalls, Broadway Market’s mix of tastes and cultures includes a very popular farmer’s market; street food; crafts; organic and Fairtrade products; and original clothing, and has made it a jewel in Hackney’s crown for attracting visitors, and a very different, highly individual rival to Borough Market.
Address: Broadway Market, off Lansdowne Drive, London Fields.
Time: Saturday only: 10 am to 5pm.
