Archway Close
N19 3TD
Twitter: @ArchwayMarket
Open: Saturdays 10am-5pm

This friendly community market has been around since 2008, but has recently moved to this newly renovated pedestrian avenue.  Archway locals have taken the market to their hearts and regularly show up here to enjoy the atmosphere, chat with stall holders and of course do a bit of shopping.

Archway may be smaller than some but it punches above its weight with a great fruit and veg stall offering all kinds of fresh seasonal produce.  Artisan cheeses are provided by the fantastic Cheese Power stall who sell at a number of markets around the capital and Marsh Produce offer a selection of free range  quality meat.  There are a few stalls offering bread and pastries with plenty of samples so you can try before you buy.  Street food is all the rage at the moment and Archway has a good International choice including Greek souvlaki wraps, Italian croquettes and the ever popular stalling offering delicious hog roast sandwiches. 

The market also boasts a few interesting bric a brac stalls, one of which is run by Barry, who traded for over thirty years in Camden Passage.  His stall is a wonderful mix of curiosities and he is always on hand to tell you about his stock if you’re curious. Each week there's a pop-up stall featuring a different local 'maker' with a carpenter, jewellery maker and even a tailor among the regulars.  A visit to Archway wouldn’t be compete without a potter at the long standing book stall (Word on the Street), which always has a great stock of reasonably priced paperback to sift through.


There’s lots to eat on the market, but if the weather isn’t great and you fancy a break, Ally’s Kitchen is next to the market and does great coffee.
