Always a nice mix of people here – from trendy kids hanging out with friends at the pubs through to young families who are there to pick up organic beef and fair trade coffee for their dinner that evening. When at Broadway market, if you want a real traditional London experience – try F. Cookes for pie and mash (and jellied eels if you're feeling brave).
The Sunday flower market on Columbia Road is a wonderful array of colour.

Hoxton Street market is on Saturdays and it's worth going to Hoxton Street to visit the Monster Supplies shop where you can buy Fang Floss (string), Impacted Ear Wax (fudge) and Zombie Fresh Mints (mint imperials).
Close by is the Geffrye museum (A14) just past Hoxton overground station has a series of period rooms from 1600 to the present day. There's also a lovely garden and café. Admission is free.
Fournier Street near Spitalfields has traditional 18th Century London houses which are very much unchanged from how they would have been 300 years ago when Jack the Ripper used to live in the area!
