I first visited Camden Market back when I was in university in Birmingham and used to make frequent trips down to London. Four years on and I still love coming back for its delicious array of food, eclectic mix of people and wonderfully weird goods. You will find it all in Camden, from spiritual crystals to offensive T-shirts, ‘hash pops’ to hand made prints, everything!
And the best part is experiencing all that Camden Market has to offer in the London sunshine.
Next to the infamous Gilgamesh restaurant, you will find this stand that sells orange juice which is out of this world! On every trip I make to Camden, I always visit this stand as soon as I get there and then come back for more on my way back. Juice is sold in small (absolutely adorable) and large bottles and at quite a reasonable price for how amazing it is. The perfect drink in the hustle and bustle of the market and even more perfect in this scorching weather.
The boys seem to agree with me.
These little bad boys are another must on any visit to Camden. They’re Dutch Waffles, normally run by a mother-daughter duo and made to perfection with large dollops of Nutella, strawberries, bananas, icing sugar and anything else you’d like to add really.
This beauty deserved a close-up.
Happily sampling anything that was offered to me along the way!
It was time for something sweet and Cupcakes and SHHHT seemed to have just what I was looking for. Wouldn’t you agree?
The boys felt a little left out so they gave me their best candid pose.

Every market I’ve visited in London is completely different from the other. Camden for example, has more of a punk-rock vibe with mohawks and black eyeliner roaming about during the day and live music echoing from bars by night. There are actually several markets scattered around Camden, starting from Camden High St to Inverness Market and leading into the main area of Camden Lock Market and The Stables. The main area stands on two levels, filled with shops, restaurants and bars. Regent’s Canal also runs through Camden Lock Market and you can take boat trips all year round. Obviously, tourists flock here on a daily basis so it can be very congested but definitely worth it if you don’t mind a bit of a push and pull here and there. You also can’t miss the discount Aldo store on Camden High St that provides an additional 30% off on already discounted shoes! Win-win!
