VISIT CAMDEN MARKET FOR FOOD, SHOPS AND ALCOHOL BY THE CANAL

WORDS BY RASHI WADHERA

No two days are the same at Camden’s very own food/eat/drink/lounge/see a lot of kitsch collective – Camden Market. Food vendors keep changing, the fries guys are always different, and there’s an eclectic line-up of super live gigs, after hours events and a terrace bar. There are over 1,000 stalls to peruse. Think vintage art, some incredible rare coffee table books (like the Complete works of the Bard), graphic printed t-shirts, futuristic clubwear, rare furniture, watch stores, a Turkish lamp shop, streetwear, a tea shop, a retro glam store (circa Mad Men) and a vintage record stall.
Camden Market also designs events (like St. Paddy’s Day celebrations), gin tasting evenings, comedy nights, coffee tasting sessions and gin making opportunities. I recommend drinking it instead. Whatever floats your boat, given you are by the canal. Yes, I saved the best for last: the whole market is by the canal, which means fries by the water. With a date perhaps, but if you’re really lucky then just by yourself, because, well fries. This article may not even be relevant by the time you visit because they’re always switching it up, but here’s hoping by the time you’ve made it this far you’re already sold.
