Old Spitalfields Market

  • About
    Old Spitalfields Market, or simply 'Spitalfields' as it is fondly known, is the world-famous East London destination. Home to a flourishing creative community, Spitalfields has over the last 14 years secured a place at the forefront of interiors, fashion, the arts and food.

    It has been the site of a busy market since 1682, when King Charles gave a licence for flesh, fowl and roots to be sold in what was then known as Spittle Fields. Three hundred and sixty odd years later and now located within the historical Horner Buildings, the market continues to be the setting for a thriving narrative.

    In one day a visitor to the market's stalls and independent shops can pick up anything from fair trade cushions and rare vinyl to lovingly crafted notebooks and hand carved toy trains. There are jewel encrusted vintage boots for individualist tastes, reconditioned art deco sofas for elegant sensibilities and an excellent array of food for all hungry bellies!

    Situated 5 minutes from Liverpool Street Station the market has wheelchair access and is buggy friendly.
