If there’s one thing I love about London – apart from the fresh air, clean streets, polite inhabitants and cheery banter on the tube – it’s the markets. Perfect at any time of the year, even better on a lazy Sunday!
If it’s quirky jewellery, vintage fashion, arts and crafts and just a general variety you’re after, Camden Market is a good’un.
If you love antiques and David Dickinson is your dream dinner date (if such a person actually exists, please let me know…or re-evaluate your life, or get yourself some help, ASAP!) then Caledonian Market, Bermondsey square is your best bet.
If you’re a bit of a cheese connoisseur – which I’m definitely not, give me a cheese string any day of the week! – are looking for great quality produce, and somewhere which is also amazing at Christmas time, (think mulled wine and apple cider, turkey’s galore, roasted chestnuts) Borough Market is your best pick.
But for me, the biggest all rounder and one that’s conveniently on my doorstep…is Greenwich Market. Packed with stalls full of antiques, clothes, jewellery, arts and crafts…and most importantly amazing food! (a lot of gluten-free options too which obviously scored major points with me. Mini pancakes, crepes, a whole GF stall full – Ruby Tuesday – of cupcakes, cookies, loafs…now that’s what I’m talking about!) I love the Greenwich area in general and could quite easily spend hours walking around the market, park, little boutiques etc….which is exactly what I did yesterday.
Here’s what I wore, don’t get too excited, I’m sure you won’t…
Top: New Look
Gilet: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: Primark (practically impossible for me to wear an outfit which doesn’t include a primark item)
Boots: Linzi (arrghh the snob in me is cringing to death writing that but hey, £20 in the sale, you can’t go wrong!)
Ridiculously uncoordinated girl who always looks about 2 seconds away from face planting the ground: that, of course, would be me!
