7 Markets You Need To Visit In London

London Bucket List By London Bucket List

Calling all foodies, thrifters, and stylistas - here are the best markets the city has to offer ☀️


Sometimes the beautiful thing about living in a big city, is pretending you don't. We love to bring ourselves to a beautiful market in search of fresh produce, food carts from all around the world, and antiques that look centuries old. Visiting different markets gives us a unique perspective on what's going on outside of the city limits, and we love it! 

Below we've rounded up our favorite markets around London that are 1000% worth your time this summer.
