I have visited the markets at Camden Town a few times, and my favourite part is definitely “The Stables Market”. Originally a stables (funnily enough) and horse hospital for horses injured while pulling barges along the canals, now it is an exciting and eclectic mix of stalls and shops. The array of merchandise on sale is staggering, and it’s not surprising that it pulls in around 100,000 visitors each weekend!
I have been three times now, and I still don’t think I’ve seen everything! From goth to cyberpunk to rockabilly and vintage, there are clothing styles to suit every taste. From cheap to expensive it is easy to get lost for hours among the clothing, food stalls, antique and bric-a-brac shops and cafes that are housed in the old tunnels and horse stalls. I especially love all the statues and information that showcase the history of the place, and are often used as part of the displays.
