I am happy to present Broadway Market-Hackney then and now. Small market in East London but with a big atmosphere. Pubs, restaurants, stalls, live independent performers. Has it all. Grab a bite and chill next to the canal. Broadway Market
is a street in the London Borough of Hackney.
This street connects London Fields with the Regent’s Canal. Broadway Market is home to market traders since the 1890s. Broadway Market-Hackney Then and Now you can see a unique mixture of tastes and cultures. In 2004, a Saturday food market was launched, and it is firmly established. Around 130 stalls selling everything from meat, fish, cheeses, pastry. You can also find amazing street food and coffee, vintage clothing, and fashion from local designers and artists. Broadway Market is one of the go-to places for food and vintage lovers. Artwords (22 Broadway Market) has a great selection of rare fashion and inspiring books, while MacBlack & Vine (47 Broadway Market) sells vintage furniture and wine.
Other attractions include the National Trust-owned Sutton House. A rare example of a Tudor red-brick house built for the Principal Secretary of State for Henry VIII. Hackney is also home to the Hackney Empire theatre and Stoke Newington Church Street with its eclectic array of specialist shops, cafes, and ethnic restaurants.
The street and schoolyard markets open every Saturday between 9 am and 5 pm. Get there earlier – not long after 9 am – before it gets busy. Arriving at around 4pm isn’t advised because many of the stallholders have a tendency to start packing up early. Shops, bars, and restaurants are open throughout the week.
Broadway Market’s nearest Tube station is London Fields on the Overground line.
