Hackney Flea Market | Bag a bargain
Their boxes get a lot of ticks.
And now, thanks to trusty second-hand marketplace, Hackney Flea, Londoners have access to a regular series of events – there’s the classic market in Hackney; another down at Peckham Salvage Yard; an independent ceramics market; a vintage furniture and lighting market; and a couple of vintage record fairs.
They’re all free to enter, and there’s often a pretty decent playlist of songs to bop along to as you shop. That, and both the Hackney and Peckham venues are located nearby a whole load of great independent cafes, restaurants, and pubs, meaning – once you’ve loaded up with treasures – you can re-energise with a cold pint or a slice of cake.
Overall it makes for a pretty wholesome Saturday or Sunday, even if you don’t have something specific in mind to buy. So much so in fact, that once you’ve been once…
…you’ll likely find yourself itching to go back.
NOTE: The Hackney Flea Markets take place in East and South London on various dates throughout the year. You can find out more via their website HERE.
