London Markets: Camden and Covent Garden

February 15, 2012

Hello again, now that Im back living in London, I plan on visiting the many markets dotted around this city and sharing my discoveries with you.  Today we have a little journey through Camden in North London and Covent Garden in Central London.

I absolutely LOVE markets.  I love the mixture of interesting things, things made by hand, other things salvaged, vintage things and especially things for eating!

Im really hoping and praying for some warmer weather though because I lose feeling in my fingers trying to shoot with my camera in this cold!

Camden Market

When the weather IS warmer, I will definitely be visiting again to sit outside and eat Moroccan food while smoking a Shisha!  I am also IN LOVE with those stained glass lamps, I wanted to buy each and every one!

Covent Garden Market

Do you have a favourite market in London you can recommend I visit?  What about in your own city, what do you love about your favourite market?

    And you started off with my two favourite markets in London. Camden is SO brilliant to visit, especially in summer. I could spend entire days there just strolling around, taking pictures and having lovely food.
    Did you find an apartment quickly then?

    Sorry me.. again…I couldn’ t help myself posting a comment.
    Very nice pictures : the choice and the colors effects.
    I noticed the impressive collection of little boussoles and sailor’s whistle !(i used to blow in one of them when i was in the navy 😉 )
    When i think of Convent Garden Market i always think about the Hitchock’s movie Frenzy. ( i know it s a bit scary one).
    Once again You re very talentous , great job !!
