Camden Market may no longer be the hub of cutting-edge London yet this fĂȘte of shops, stalls and eateries is a big hit with teens and alternative tweens. The marketplace extends north from Camden Town tube to Chalk Farm station and comprises six separate bazaars - the Stables, Buck Street, Electric Ballroom, Inverness Street, Camden Lock, and Camden Lock Village - each with its own particular character and selling everything from vintage threads and jewelry to fruits and veggies and a whole lot of bric-a-brac. Shop for retro t-shirts and second-hand books. Peek in piercing parlors on the High Street. Eat street food from around the globe. Take in the scene.
