Since we've been in London, one of our favourite things to do is go to markets and there are so many that by the time we leave we won't even make a dent on the market scene.
There are several reasons why we like markets so much:
1. Markets have awesome food. We've yet to go to a market in London that has bad food. They don't exist. And the food is cheap, which leads to our second reason...
2. Markets don't cost any money to visit. At least until you buy tons of stuff.
3. Pretty much every borough has it's own market, so we're always finding new places and discovering new things on our way to and from the markets. Don't be afraid to go off the main roads. Go down side streets and try new routes. It's the best way to discover a city.
Josh's classmates at school told him that the Camden Markets are particularly exciting. So we headed there on a Saturday to find out. The core of the market is an old horse stable. You can literally get lost for hours wandering the tunnels and little ally's. This market is a bit cheesy when it comes to the vendors, lots of cheap gimmicks for tourists and after a while the stalls start to blend and look the same... BUT there are gems to be found. The food alone is worth a visit.
