One of London's' most famous markets is Camden Market. This is
actually made up from 5 smaller markets that together became
known as Camden Market. Collectively these markets attract around
150,000 per week to the area. While the market really comes to life
on weekends and especially Sundays, may stalls are open all week
The major part of the market is the North end of Camden High Street;
this is the section that runs between Camden Town Station and Chalk
Farm Road. On weekends the street is lined with a rich mixture of
stalls selling anything from fashion and jewellery to second hand
items and fruit and veg.
'Stables Market' with around 350 shops and stalls unsurprisingly gets
its name from its former use as stables which included a horse
hospital to care for horses
injured pulling barges along Regents Canal. This is located by the
junction with Chalk Farm Road and Camden High Street.
'Camden Lock market' has been trading since 1975 and gets its name
from the Lock by the bridge over Regents canal where its located.
'Camden Canal Market' is located opposite Camden Lock Market and has
around 150 stalls.
'Buck Street market' is a collection of around 200 stalls at the
junction of Buck Street and Camden High Street.
'Inverness Market' on the junction of Inverness Street and Camden High
Street was originally a fruit and vegetables market and has been
located on this site since 1900. Now the stalls and shops sell a
variety of products and articles.
In March 2008 a huge fire destroyed much of Canal market which is
part of Camden market.
