London is quirky and its markets offer you endless possibilities to shop kitsch, vintage, jazzy, delicate, memorabilia, plants and the list can go on. The centrally located Camden Market is a phenomena. From its very creative and bold storefronts, to bargains (yes you can haggle with the sellers and its not an insult to the very ‘proper’ British way of life) to its psychedelic collection of clothes and boots, the unlimited cheap Chinese buffets and some finger licking street food, Camden market is an encore for anyone who wants to laze and chill out on a good weather day.
While we are still in a Lockdown, we are not far away from going back to old normal. Capturing life in the very lively Camden Market.
Camden market is not one covered market like Greenwich or Leadenhall. Its a collection of hundreds of shops in Camden Town or Camden Lock. Its very similar to Portobello Market. A long road which has shops in each of its side streets and many small and mid size of covered markets like the one in the featured picture. If you keep walking you will come to one of the end of Regent Canals which again has a lovely market full of street food stalls.
I still have not bought anything in Camden Market, thats a shame. But I have been so enamored by its store fronts and the quirky way they have used to embellish their products on their store walls, its fascinating.
A shoe jutting out from the wall, half a pizza hanging on the terrace, a big python staring at you; at a point of time this market can even look like a fantasy land.
Camden will always be one of the most visited market and a hotspot to spend your weekends. Beyond the market, there are lovely parks, riverside trails, cafes to hang around in the area.
Eagerly waiting for the Lockdown to end, so we can once again get together and enjoy the summers.
