The market has been trading for over 300 years now, and it’ll probably survive 300 more. Once stacked with fruit and veg stalls to rival that of Covent Garden, today Old Spitalfields Market is a style destination for the City. With 7 days of food, fashion and crafts bringing in 40,000 visitors per week.
The structure itself is Grade-II listed, with high-end boutiques dotted around the perimeter. Mixing established names with of-the-moment brands, Chanel, McQ and Dr Martens rub shoulders with the likes of Cutler and Gross, Mercantile London and Rapha Cycle Club. Old
Spitalfields Market has a great knack for staying relevant, constantly refreshing its hub of ideas.
Spitalfield's got lots of shops, good for lunch, good for picking up things for my wife. Nice and artsy on the weekends.
Gary, police officer
I love the style, the energy, the people, the juxtaposition of the old market and the financial centres, it's a really diverse mix.
Andrea, Stylist assistant
There are quite a lot of cool places to eat and drink, or just to hang out.
