Old Spitalfields Market represents one of the country's last bastions of consumer diversity and individuality. Home to an old-fashioned community of over 30 independent and large traders and a plethora of chic bohemian businesses, it has secured its place at the forefront of interiors, design, food and the arts - a market that truly embraces the spirit of modern London, an entrepreneurial and cultural melting pot that is ever-changing and developing without ever forgetting its historic past. As Samuel Johnson so eloquently said of London: 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." The same is very much true of Old Spitalfields Market.

Lovely old market building with small stalls selling upmarket clothes and gifts. There is however a branch of Tiger here too. Lots of cafes and restaurants as well as food stalls. We had a very good coffee at Crepe Affaire

I visited my college friend who was studying abroad in London. To be honest, I think London lacks a lot of good food. But this place makes up for it. In a city that's filled with KFCs and weird Middle Eastern knockoffs, this was like...More

Lots of stalls. Lots to see, do and eat. Would reccomend if in the area. Not cheap but not far from Brick Lane which is.

Lots of interesting stalls with unique clothing, old records and quirky gifts. It's all inside so no worries about the weather. A few restaurants or cafes dotted around if some of your family want a break whilst you are still shopping. Closest tube Liverpool Street...More

We strolled through the market, had a bite to eat, and browsed vendors. There is an assortment of items- leather goods, clothing, jewelry, maps, even a Tarot card reader- who by the way was pretty talented. A nice place to see on a relaxed day.

I really liked this market! The vendors offer a variety of things - from food to clothes to knick-knacks- definitely will have something for everyone. I could easily spend hours just browsing through. Or if you want to kill time, this is definitely the place!...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
