Summer is peak season for London’s Markets. It’s the perfect time to get out there and discover something new. There’s so much on, it can be hard to know where to start, which is why I Love Markets has published the Official Guide to London’s Markets this Summer. This summer there’s an array of new markets entering the scene as well as an awesome lineup of special market events and fusions. The magazine is being distributed for FREE around London, but you can also read it online.
As I always say, “Discover the heart of London, discover London’s Markets.”
In our Summer Guide I share some of my favourite market haunts, as well as the best markets to find niche products and experiences. Whether you like to eat street, shop vintage, antiques or arts and crafts; London’s markets have it all! Here’s are some of my favourite slice of market action to check out this summer!
