Broadway Market | London

After the Wiltshire fiasco, I thought I would comfort myself by reminiscing my time in London over the past couple of years. So over the next few weeks, here I will revisit a couple of places that I enjoyed in the British capital and hopefully you’ll find some good recommendations along the way.

Let’s kick it off with the Broadway Market, the go-to market in East London. It’s a total foodie paradise with its selection of fresh bread, cheese, cured meat, cakes, good coffee and the old fruit & veg’. Other goods are available too, such as flowers, crafts and vintage clothing. I don’t like throwing the hipster word too much around but one could say it has that distinctive buzzing vibe.

The bordering shops are also well worth your time, settle in a cute café or browse artsy magazines in Artwords, which has one of the greatest selection of fashion magazines I ever seen; or pick a classic or two in Broadway Bookshop.

Broadway market is one of those places I want to come back to next time I’m in London as I feel I’ve only scratched the surface of this bubbling area. I keep learning about new places that each sound more fabulous than the last; like this shop that sells rainbow meringues or this vintage seller under the cover of a launderette.
