Rated 4.6 out of 5Camden Market Star Rating

5 Star Rating 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 👍

5 Star Rating 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

4 Star Rating 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!

4 Star Rating 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.

4 Star Rating 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.
