MARKETS

Broadway Market £

(broadwaymarket.co.uk; Broadway Market)

There's been a market down this pretty street since the late 19th century. The focus these days is artisan food, books, records, arty knick-knacks and vintage clothing every Saturday.

Pop Brixton £

One of London's latest venues to use old shipping containers for hosting pop-up bars, restaurants and shops, Pop Brixton is a fun community initiative with a buzzing atmosphere, especially on weekends. It hosts regular events and classes (some free), including t'ai chi, capoeira, yoga and wood-engraving.

Stables Market £

(camdenmarket.com; Chalk Farm Road)

Connected to the Lock Market, the Stables is the best part of the Camden Market complex, with antiques, Asian artefacts, rugs, retro furniture and clothing. As the name suggests, it used to be an old stables.

The Sunday Upmarket (open on Saturdays and Sundays) sprawls within the beautiful red-brick Old Truman Brewery.
