    Such a lot of great places here. The variety in food options alone is impressive. Gets busy but understandably so. Great for lunch, and they have benches to sit on. The brownies from Konditor are good

    You'll find some brilliant handmade stuff here. Look out for the card guy. He makes the most fantastic cards, also the Jewellery stalls here are fantastic! You're missing out if you haven't been.

    Really nice map stall which I spent a while at. The stall-holder has more in stock than are on display, and some are not too expensive at all (under £20).

    Old-timers (pre-2006) will know the current site looks nothing like the original Old Spitalfields Market. It's cleaned up tremendously and now surrounded by high-end shops. Good or bad - you decide!

    Taberna de mercado is pretty ace. Also, bleecker street street burger has my heart, and it should have yours too. Try no peak times if poss as it's very touristy!

    So many food options! Some stalls accept card payment. There are also few cash machines at the market. Good place for lunch all year round. They have benches and tables + heaters in winter.

    Love this place! Great for lunch, coffee and dessert on weekdays. On Thursdays there is an antique market, with beautiful objects and materials. Also, the stores are amazing!

    To be honest there is nothing special about the market but the wide selection of food trucks which makes it great for lunch time..

    The market is now open from Tuesday and even if it has become more commercial, you can still find some little treasures (expecially jewelry) and lovely people to welcome you.

    Two cash machines in close proximity but only one is free. The one near the toilets, Teasmith, etc charges. Cross to the other side and there is a free ATM between giraffe cafe and the wine shop.

    Great for what it is. Don't expect a flea market meets good court so much as a mini-mall meets popular restaurants. There's a Lululemon for goodness sake.

    The old 'Old Spitalfields Market' was much better, but with gentrification, the market has undergone a further transformation. Still, it is buzzing on a daily basis with an assortment of shops.

    There are two italian booths inside - one sells pasta, another pizza. Pasta is great, now want to try pizza. Looks like wood oven.

    A mix of cheap tat and good quality clothing stalls. For such a small market its easy to get disoriented. Allocate time to explore but avoid the chain restaurants.

    If you get bored of shopping, explore the streets between the market and brick lane. There are some beautiful houses to see

    Though not everyone is a fan of the recent redevelopment of Spitalfields (particularly those pushed out by the rising rents), the market has been afforded a new lease of life. Read more
