Markets in Islington

  • Jun

To help keep our traders, shoppers and community safe we took the difficult decision to close all street markets in Islington until further notice on 3 Aprilsmall number of market stall traders will be able to reopen for business from 9 May, to test whether new guidelines on social distancing can keep shoppers and workers safe. We hope to have a phased reopening of our markets as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Islington has some amazing markets to visit. Whether you’re looking to shop for something special or buy the ingredients for meals, join the hustle and bustle created by our street traders serving the community and visitors alike.

We have four established council-run markets: Chapel, Exmouth, Camden Passage and Whitecross Street, which have hundreds of years of tradition. There are also some privately-run more specialised markets to visit, so what are you waiting for, visit today!
