The best day to visit Brick Lane market is on Sundays, though the shops and restaurants are open every day. On Sundays the streets are lined with people hawking their second-hand wares, with some good bargains to be had if you look hard enough! There are also street performers to enhance the vibrant, lively atmosphere.
Brick Lane Market is a chaotic, bustling artistic hub which attracts a lot of young Londoners in search of second-hand furniture, unusual clothes and bric-a-brac. They'll finish with an inexpensive Sunday lunch in one of the many ethnic restaurants and cafes lining the street, which include authentic Jewish bagel shops and Bangladeshi curry houses. The joy of this market is that you never know what you'll find; anything from cheap leather clothes, old magazines and kitsch collectibles to stunning silks and Art Deco furniture.
