Go shopping in Shepherds Bush Market

An interesting little market, which is so much part of Shepherds Bush that they even renamed a tube station after it, the Shepherds Bush Market runs six days a week and offers an opportunity to acquire a huge array of things.

The market dates from the early twentieth century, and has traditionally served the local Irish and Afro-Caribbean communities, which, when combined with the Somali, Syrian, Lebanese, Iranian, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities who also call the area home, means that a wide range of produce is available.

Recently, the market has been threatened with demolition as part of an ominous redevelopment project which is presumably designed to turn all of Shepherds Bush into the Westfield Centre, but for now it remains just the same as ever.
