the markets

Camden is known for its avant garde fashion designers, cutting edge musicians, talented artists and craftsmen, exciting clubs and music venues but, above all, it is known for its markets. The area attracts more than 100,000 people every weekend who descend on the markets to browse and shop or just hang out, soak up the atmosphere and meet friends in the dozens of local bars and restaurants. It is the largest street market in the UK although actually it is a collection of six separate markets.

Many of Camden's shops and market stalls are open throughout the week from about 11am to 6pm.(with the exception of the Electric Ballroom market - Sundays only - and Camden Canal Market and the antiques section of Stables market - both only open at weekends.

Weekdays are a good time to miss out on the weekend crowds and get down to some serious shopping as you can browse through the shops without all the hustle and bustle to distract you.

The only day everything is closed is December 25.



The weekend is the busiest time for Camden's markets and all the stalls and shops are open from about 11am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.

The streets are thronging with people, music blares out from dozens of different sources along the way, your senses are assaulted with an explosion of colour from every side while exotic cooking smells entice from restaurants and food stalls in all directions. It is very crowded all year round
