Camden Market first sprung up in 1974, as a weekly crafts fair set on the banks of the Regent’s Canal; today, a mass of stalls, clothing boutiques and vintage stores make up one of the capital’s biggest and most popular markets, sprawled along the famous Camden Lock and blending into the High Street’s mix of rock clubs and atmospheric pubs. The market is actually split into four individual markets, open daily from 10am until around 6pm, but it’s the weekends when the area really comes alive.
