Brick Lane Market

Brick Lane Market is a chaotic collection of colorful street art, frenetic food stalls, booming block parties, sweet second-hand shops and hoards of hipsters. The popular outdoor market is located at the heart of trendy East London, straddling the nearby Bangladeshi neighborhood.

The market and its offerings vary largely from one day to the next. Actually one of the greatest joys of Brick Lane is that you never really know what treasures you can find!

The area around Brick Lane used to be comprised of decrepid slums, and was best known as the scene of the grisly Jack the Ripper murders. Since then, a lot has changed, and nowadays the area is edgy and artistic, as well as warmly welcoming and mostly murder-free!

The shops and restaurants are open daily, but the most popular day to visit the bustling market is definitely Sunday, when you can also enjoy the talent of some great street performers (and massive crowds)!
