The team at Love Camden have given us their top five market hidden gems in the borough of Camden:

1)    Leather Lane

One of London’s oldest markets, Leather Lane, sells fruit, vegetables, flowers and fabric,  but what we really love is the food! Our favourite is Daddy Donkey Mexican grill’s tasty burritos. Monday to Friday

2)    Earlham Street Market

For beautiful, fresh flowers head to Earlham Street Market, off Seven Dials. Here you’ll find both exotic and local flowers on display, as well as second hand clothes, funky T-shirts and bric-a-brac. Monday to Saturday

3)    eat.st

The newest addition to the Camden street food scene, eat.st collective, is a rotating group of food vendors behind King’s Cross station. We can’t go past The Ribman and his special hot sauce without buying some! Monday to Friday

4)    Camden Farmers’ Markets

Camden has three farmers markets: Bloomsbury Farmers’ Market (Thursdays) offers loyal customers a lunch club card which gets you your sixth lunch free. Look for Les Lawrence of Christchurch Fish, who sells fresh fish from Dorset at St John’s Wood Farmers’ Market (Saturdays). Parliament Hill Farmers’ Market (Saturdays) serves up award-winning sausages from Giggly Pig Farm.

5)    Queen’s Crescent

Visiting Queen’s Crescent Market is like stepping back in time! Rumoured to be London’s oldest market, it’s still very popular with locals. One of the first Sainsbury’s stores was at number 159 and Mr Sainsbury lived above the shop.  The market sells discount everything – clothing, flowers, household items and there’s a great selection of food stalls selling international cuisine at very reasonable prices. Thursdays and Saturdays

Sourced Market Opens at St Pancras International http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/09/sourced-market-opens-at-st-pancras-international/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/09/sourced-market-opens-at-st-pancras-international/#comments Sun, 06 Sep 2009 10:00:50 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=1994 Kate Scott at the Flour Power City stall

Exciting news for foodies: a brand new farmers’ market opens in London tomorrow.

Sourced Market at St Pancras International has stalls piled high with fruit and veg, cheeses, olives, cakes, fresh juices and wines.

The Flour Power City Bakery stand is sure to be popular, selling delicious breads and cakes, and possibly the best chocolate brownies in London.

The bakery already has stands at Borough Market and farmers’ markets around London.

Kate Scott from Flour Power City was very excited about the new opening.

“We started off in Hoxton Street 12 years ago and we’ve just grown from there,” she said. “We tried shops but they didn’t seem to work for some reason.”

It seems markets are the place to be. Make sure you check out Sourced Market when it opens next week!
