Hackney’s five street markets are:

Ridley Road Market, London, E8. Over 165 stalls offering a range of quality goods at very competitive prices. Choose various goods and foods from Asia, Africa, Caribbean, United Kingdom and the Mediterranean including the latest ladies and men’s fashion and accessories, lingerie, footwear, toiletries, electrical, electronics, household goods and of course traditional and exotic fruit and vegetables. The usual trading days and times are: Monday to Thursday 6am to 6pm. Friday and Saturday 6am to 7pm.

Broadway Market, E8. Just off Lansdowne Drive, London Fields. A farmer’s style market with good quality fashion, foods and arts. It is at its busiest on Saturdays between 7.30am to 6.00pm. As 25 December falls on a Saturday, the market will open on Friday 24 December from 9am to 3pm.

Kingsland Waste Market, E8 on the A10 between Middleton Road and Richmond Road. You can pick up tools, car and bike accessories, various small secondhand goods, fruit and vegetables. This is a Saturday only market from 7am to 3pm.

Chatsworth Market, E5 is a trial market which will open for business on Sunday 12 December 2010 only from 11am to 3pm. This is the last date for this year, so take advantage and visit the market for various items including cooked food,  vintage items, clothing, arts and crafts.

In addition to the several well established markets, there is Netil Market, which I like to refer to as an Off off Broadway Production.  Situated in the courtyard of Netil House on West Gate Street and just a stone throw from Broadway market. Ran by an ensemble of some of East London’s most talented creative young minds, it’s worth a visit to see some of their unique one of a kind fashion, jewelry and even hand made shoes.

Netil Market is at:

Netil House
11 – 25 Westgate Street
London Fields
Hackney E8 3RL
