Broadway Market

Broadway Market, Hackney, London, England, E8 4QL

The Basics

Broadway Market is one of London’s busiest and hippest shopping spots. Located in the Hackney area, the market features stores and stalls selling organic meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, smoked salmon and oysters, baked goods, cheese, and even vintage clothing. After visiting the market and stocking up on food, many visitors head to nearby London Fields for a picnic in the park.

Visit the market as part of a food tour that takes you off the tourist path and into the locals’ favorite shops and eateries. East London-focused food tours usually also visit the hip neighborhood of Hoxton.

The Cat and Mutton

At the northern end of the street, the Cat and Mutton Pub, which was established in 1729, has weathered all of the changes that have taken place around Broadway Market. It has also adapted with the times and is now a retro-outfitted hipster hangout serving cocktails, ales, and delicious roasts. On summer days and evenings, the place is packed with revelers spilling out onto the sidewalk.
