Trip Report London Broadway Market : a brief review

Jump to last reply

I decided to wander down to Broadway Market today despite the miserable but typical weather. It's about an hours walk away from me and part of it through parks and along Regent's canal, so it would be a pleasant walk if nothing else.

I was intrigued by a review I that said it was what Borough Market would be if only locals visited, I concur!

It's fantastic food and produce at good prices. I reckon it's far away enough from the tourist route to stay this way. My haul today included spiced hot chocolate, russian stuffed cabbage, a brownie (desert for tonight's dinner), some good bread, veg , a pair of cheap and cheerful earrings, chegworth valley apple juice, some isle of wight chilli tomato sauce , a veggie scotch egg and a couple of books. The street has 2 good independent bookshops and nice looking restaurants as well. There's also a few clothing and bags type of stalls, but I didn't pay much attention to them.

No ostrich any thing or wild boar stuff, and reasonable crowds that are actually there to shop -- not just gawk.

It's right next to London Fields, so in nice weather, it's a fantastic picnic opportunity.

So, if you're a local or staying for a while, it's well well worth a visit.
