Brick Lane Market
We’ll continue our journey east to Brick Lane Market, which is based around the site of the former Truman brewery with four separate markets and a food hall. The Vintage Market, open from Friday to Sunday, has a huge selection of retro clothing such as furs and wedding dresses from the 1920s to the 1990s.
The Backyard Market is the place to find cutting-edge arts and crafts from up and coming young designers. If you’re looking for collectable crockery, a classic camera or an Art Deco lamp, head for The Tea Rooms, a treasure trove of antiques. Sunday Up Market sells clothing and innovative items for the home alongside vintage vinyl records.
Take a break from shopping and visit the Boiler House food hall for some tasty snacks and drinks. The markets are at their busiest at the weekend and open from 11.00 to 18.00 on Saturday and from 10.00 to 17.00 on Sunday. The nearest underground station is Aldgate East on the Hammersmith and City Line.
