Good for: A rambling warren of 700 stalls for vintage wear, sunglasses, leather, goth gear, and fast foods, partly in a canal-side setting, and favored by tourists. Between the Lock Market, the Market Hall, the Horse Stables, and Camden Lock Village across the street, the crowds are utterly exhausting.

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 vinyl, programs, and film posters (Sat) and retro and punk clothes (Sun).
