Well I think I've found my new favourite market in London. Broadway Market is situated in East London, in the borough of Hackney near London Fields. It's mainly a food market, but occasionally there are flowers, jewellery, clothes and gift stalls dotted up and down the road, down towards Regent's Canal.

I found this to be one of the cheaper markets in London, with prices from about £1.50 upwards - far cheaper than Portobello or Borough.

There's a huge range of food, catering to all different diets. We passed doughnuts, meringues, brownies, cupcakes, cookies, eclairs....a dessert-lover's (i.e. me) dream. There aren't a lot of places to sit and eat, but London Fields park is just a stone's throw away, and sometimes there are deckchairs, but I think these are just in summer!

If you want to experience a true London market that's a bit different, less crowded, and cheaper, head to Broadway!
