Old Spitalfields MarketNestled in the heart of the city, in the shadow of Christ Church, Old Spitalfields Market offers the perfect antidote to out-of-town shopping
malls. You'll find the delightful old covered market off Brushfield
Street if you're coming from Liverpool Street Station. The stalls under
the covered part of the market are the place to look for something
original, of excellent quality and value for money. Sundays are by far
the busiest, with over 150 stalls operating, including a specialist
organic market. On Fridays, there's a fun Fashion and Design Market
where young designers showcase their work. There's so much to do and see
here - and plenty of interesting shops surrounding the covered market
too. Spitalfields has evolved elegantly, combining the new with the old
so you'll get brands like Canteen, Agnes B and Benefit behind the large
glass fronted stores happily sitting next to sole traders selling quirky
clothes from their market stalls.
