We all know your property is just one aspect that helps you feel at home in a particular area; there is a great deal to be said for having a vibrant community around you. For convenience, you want reliable shopping options, but you also want entertainment and social opportunities.
We believe a great atmosphere is essential for making the most of local life, and in Hackney, you can find all of these aspects together in one of the many local markets. Whether you are shopping for something in particular, catching up with friends or just staying in touch with the local community, the Hackney markets are an essential aspect for homeowners and residents.
Broadway Market is a big favourite amongst the local community
No matter what you are looking for, you’ll find Broadway Market is likely to have it. There is a tantalising array of gourmet food on offer, and if you want to have your taste buds tickled by delicacies from around the world, you’ll love what you find. Hackney is well known for being a multicultural area, and Broadway Market is a brilliant example of how people come together to make the best of their time in the local area.
When you are tired of market stall shopping, you can relax by heading to the nearby independent bookshop, or if you feel in need for something a bit stronger, The Dove Freehouse and Kitchen is an excellent stopping point.
Whether you’re craving iced Vietnamese coffee, vegetarian scotch eggs or vintage patterned jumpsuits for a tenner, this favourite among East London locals is sure to deliver.
Mare Street Market is a newer option
There is a lot to be said for an indoor market, making it easy to shop, no matter the weather. Mare Street Market is close to Broadway Market, but it is a relatively new addition to the local area. Pop-up shops ensure there is always something new to look out for, and the market has developed an excellent reputation for vinyl shoppers, antique buyers and those who love their coffee done right.
Ridley Road helps you get your five a day
You want to be fit and active so you can make the most of Hackney life, and Ridley Road market is an excellent option to swing by on occasions. You’ll find an excellent range of food and drink from all over the world, and this is a market area that provides plenty of laughs and friendly faces. This market opens from 6 am, so if you are on your way to work, or on your way home from a night out, you can help yourself to some of the freshest vitamin C you can hope to find.
Hackney DIY Art Market is ideal for the area
You are likely drawn to Hackney for the artistic vibe, which means the Hackney DIY Art Market allows you to support local artists, and indulge your bohemian tastes, close to your doorstep. Whether you are buying or browsing, this is a fantastic market to spend time in.
