Fodor's 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. At least some of the CDs and DVDs are pirated, 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, where there are similar goods but less atmosphere.
