Very nice! I've never been to Brick Lane before

I was surprised by the lack of Asians in these pictures, less than in Hounslow.

ahh, Ill have to wait till my next Sunday off, keep y'all posted. It'll be great to see a wintertime version (and 2 years on how the trends have changed) - same vibe, noise and crowds - just more clothes, and less sitting on wet pavements...

Wonderful report. I don't know when's the next time I get to London, so I can only hope I'll be able to still see this myself.

Can I post a selection of your pics on my blog, providing full credit and a link to this thread to see the whole photo report?

yes, please do!

This market is only on Sundays remember (morning is quiet, lunchtime and afternoon busy). Take Liverpool St tube - there are 5 distinct markets all interconnected, if you follow the crowds youre looking for Brick Lane Upmarket (indoors) and Brick Lane Market (outdoors surrounding the upmarket building and up Brick Lane itself).

Other photogenic markets nearby are Spitalfields (fashion, arts n crafts, lots of middle class spenders, housed in a converted Victorian covered market), and Columbia Flower Market (mornings).

okee, traipsed through the tail end of the market today, near closing. Apologies for the quality - had the cam on the wrong setting the whole time

Very different, very cold, but alot of warmth still to be had.
