Retail Therapy: Camden Markets

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK

Camden Markets is situated in northwest London along the Regents Canal towpath. Filled with over 1000 stalls, this colorful indoor/outdoor market is open 7 days a week (incl Sunday when many stores are closed). 

Camden Markets is actually comprised of 5 separate markets, so if you think you've seen it all in one hour, keep looking. Under bridges, in alleyways, nooks, and courtyards you'll find unique food, clothing, arts and crafts, entertainment, pubs, and much more. 

And in case you are a rock star, MTV studios is nearby.

This photo is a tribute to my college days of crazy love for The Cure and my Doc Martens. I saw them in concert in London in 1989 - a true life highlight (just behind my wedding and a few births).

I'll just let you get the vibe from these photos with little commentary

Loads of clever design at Camden Markets, don't you think?

I love the vibrancy of London... NYC feels the same, but there's no place like home for me... Thank you for sharing these pictures. Lx

I loved Camden when I was a teen — haven't been back forever. Maybe I should go when I go back to England for Xmas. I bought this hideous pair of brown, patchwork, leather platform shoes there once — ha!

If you're interested, I'm having a little giveaway on my blog at the moment: My Autumn/Birthday Giveaway! Hope you enter!

I was a metal artist for awhile and the best looking steel toe boots I could find were Doc Martens! I love walking the streets of London with you!
