LONDON | The Old Spitalfields Market is a covered market in Spitalfields, housed in buildings dating back to 1897, with two thirds rebuilt in the late 20th century. A market has existed on this site ever since King Charles proclaimed the market in 1638, when it was used for the sale of “flesh, fowl and roots”. The wholesale portion of the market moved to Lleyton in 1991, and today the original site is where people can find antiques, food and drink, fashion and design.

While the most recent redevelopment did remove some of the charm from the market, replacing it with a more modern, corporate look, there’s still a lot to like here, from the original architecture to the lively atmosphere and independent retailer stalls.

When it comes to food, the same story as the rest of the market applies. Avoid the plentiful chains at the market and make sure you visit some of the gems that are located here – Portuguese restaurant Taberna Do Mercado from chef Nuno Mendes, Bleecker Burger, and Department of Coffee & Social Affairs.

Keep an eye out for the regular special events that are held at Old Spitalfields Market if you’re planning a visit. There’s always something interesting beyond the everyday offering here, be that vintage Saturdays, style market Saturdays or holiday themed events.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
