Good for: Tourists favor this rambling warren of 700 stalls for vintage fashions, sunglasses, leather, goth wear, and fast foods, partly in a dockside setting. Between the Lock Market, the Market Hall, the Horse Stables, and Camden Lock Village across the street, options seem never-ending, but the crowds can be tiring.

Also check out: Stables Market, on the other side of the railway off Chalk Farm Road, sells vintage clothes, antiques, and pop culture knick-knacks; Electric Market (on Camden High St.) is an indoor fair of cool T-shirts, fake furs, and goth wear, Saturday and Sunday.
