Brick Lane, Spitalfields, London, E1 6PU
Brick Lane Market is pure East End London, which means Jewish bagel shops, Bangladeshi curry houses, Indian sari silks - and Cockneys crying out their wares. This chaotic, bustling market is half way between jewel and junk heap. It attracts lots of young Londoners, in search of second-hand furniture, unusual clothes and bits of this-and-that. They'll finish with an inexpensive Sunday lunch (probably curry) in a local restaurant. The joy of this market is that you never know what you'll find, anything from cheap leather clothes and old magazines to Art Deco furniture - with a lot of old junk in between.
