Whitecross Street Market
Islington, London, EC1
GENERAL MARKET: Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm
SPECIAL FOOD MARKET:
Every Thursday & Friday, 11am - 5pm
If you find yourself gallery hopping in the east end, take a detour down Whitecross Street for one of the oldest outdoor markets in London. Whitecross Street Market traces its roots back to the 17th century, and with longevity like that, you know it has to have the perfect mix of food and wares. Located around the corner from the Dazed Gallery, in the midst of great shops, coffee dives and art galleries, the market is open everyday, but Thursdays and Fridays are not to be beat. For the special food market, vendors set up shop with everything from curries to fresh olives and salads to guacamole-topped burritos. Both your taste buds— and your wallet— will find the experience heavenly.
