London Shopping



Brick Lane Review

The noisy center of the Bengali community is a hubbub of buying and selling. Sunday stalls have food, hardware, household and electrical goods, books, bikes, shoes, clothes, spices, and traditional saris. The CDs and DVDs may not be entirely legitimate and the bargain iron may not have a plug so be careful. Shoppers nevertheless flock to the market to enjoy the ethnic buzz, sample curries and Bengali sweets, or indulge in salt beef on a bagel at Beigel Bake—London's 24-hour bagel bakery, a survivor of the neighborhood's Jewish past. Brick Lane's activity spills over into nearby Petticoat Lane Market that purveys similar goods but with less atmosphere.
