A really vibrant location, great street food, local beers & full of fun. There is so much to do there from walking and sampling the ambiance to relaxing on a canal boat trip through to Little Venice. A great day out & highly recommended 👍

My two favourite things to do; shopping and food. All in one shopping, from one of a kind items to souvenir central. The vibe is awesome, the sound of people talking and laughing, music and culture. The food truck area is so good for a lunch option we had Venezuelan which did not disappoint. We went on a Sunday and they didn't start until 12pm- not great for tourist schedule but nonetheless it was great. We went in early Summer and by 1pm it was very busy- like all markets get there early to beat the crowd

Great experience, I came in the evening and a lot of the places were shut. It did not ruin the experience. A lot of food places to choose from, we tried the cheesy naan and funky chips. We had recently watch a YouTube review on them both, fair to say we was not disappointed!

It’s a nice atmospheric market from a distance, but very-very busy when you get inside. So prepare for a lot of people and dive in the selection of a huge number of little stores and foodies. You name it, it’s available in this market, you just gotta find it.

Very busy market with loads of amazing food stalls to choose from. The markets themselves are alright, but seem to repeat themselves a bit, it doesn't seem as unique as it used to be. But there's still loads to do. You could easily spend the whole day here wandering around each stall.
