Shop in Hoxton Street Market

There has been a market in Hoxton since 1687, and today it's still going strong. The Saturday market is a particular gem, with scores stalls selling everything from eels and fresh vegetables to sweets and clothes.

Unlike other more gentrified markets in the area, Hoxton Street Market has retained its East End charm, and still offers up a range of food, fruit and veg, clothes and footwear, alongside a range of things including household goods and toiletries.

The market, and its distinctive arch, are a short distance from Old Street Tube, and it runs from Monday to Saturday, with Saturdays being busiest. It is held on Hoxton Street, N1 and runs from 7.30am to 6pm.
