Islington markets: Chapel Market

Chapel Market entrance

Known as the “heart of the Angel”, Chapel Market has been serving the local community for more than 150 years. This traditional street market offers a wide selection of stalls, offering fresh fruit and veg, flowers, cards and gifts, as well as toys, gadgets and electrical goods.

The area was such a hotspot for traders that Sainbury’s opened their first Islington store on the market’s corner in 1882, expanding to open three more speciality stores on the street over the next few years.

Formerly known as Chapel Street, it was officially recognised as a market in 1879, the market is still going strong with some stalls, and traders, having worked on the market for more than 50 years. It’s also home to one of 2021’s Market Trader of the Year award winners, Jenny Rowley, whose fashion stall is a regular fixture.

Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own bags and food containers to help keep the market sustainable and reduce waste locally.
