Saturday is market day: Broadway Market

You know how people say that London’s fashion scene is so full of weird, unpredictable “special somethings”? I would narrow that down to the boroughs that aren’t anywhere near central because the authenticity in Westminster and the like is largely made up of Primark bags or buzzingly vibrant guys in suits. Ehem. This may or may not take you by surprise, but East London is different. Broadway Market for example is a huge accumulation of awesomeness, of colours that don’t go together but kinda do because said person just owns it and pulls it off. And don’t even get me started on the street food. So if you’re looking for the kind of city that is often described in guide books or blogs, opt for Hoxton on a Sunday instead of Oxford Street and you’re sorted out.

  1. This is some pretty good street photography, love the little markets that are still alive in London, you’ve really captured the community feel in it.

      Thanks Antony! Exactly – these communities and little cobbled market streets keep London alive, love them.

    Oh, this makes me homesick for East London…not something I often experience! Beautiful photos.

  3. Captivating photos! You really have a gift. Thank you for this post! This is the London that I’d like to explore when I eventually make the trip.
