Overview

Camdentown, Chalk Farm and Mornington Crescent stations (Northern Line) all bring you to Camden. Buses are also rife around the area.World-famous Camden Market encompasses Camden Lock Market and Stable Market which, yes, used to be horse stables. Here you’ll find tons of food options as well as lots of small shops with quirky bits and bobs to peruse and pick up. If you start your market visit at the Camden Town station you will encounter the various main areas in the following order: 1. The Buck Street Market is located at the corner of Buck Street and Camden High street, not far from the underground station. About 200 stalls line up along narrow corridors at this outdoor market. There are mainly simple textiles such as T-Shirts, jeans, caps, costume jewelry and other cheap mass products. 2. The Camden Lock Market can be found at the end of the Camden high street, just after the bridge over Regent's Canal. This market area is regularly used since 1975 and is therefore the origin of the Camden Markets. At this place you will find many stalls with high-quality craft items located in and around a building with 3 floors. Particularly noteworthy is also the wide range of food stalls with fragrant dishes from all over the world. This is Street Food of the finest kind. 3. The Stables Market is located along the Chalk Farm Road in an area where in early times there have been stables. The stalls and shops are usually covered and are located mainly in these stables or in the arches under a railway viaduct. At approx. 700 shops and stalls you can find among others alternative fashion, vintage clothing, furniture, antiques and Second-Hand items. Although the Camden Market is open 7 days a week you should consider carefully which day you choose for your visit. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the days where all stalls and shops are usually open. If you like to surprise your stomach with extraordinary dishes, you should schedule a break at one of the many food stalls. Usually you will not have any troubles to develop the necessary appetite as there are so many places with intense and exotic smells of the offered dishes.
