Explore the beauty of Africa whilst remaining in the East End of London! Head over to the vibrant Spitalfields Market on Monday 5th May for a day filled with crafts, music, food and shopping.

If you’re tired of the usual vintage antiques markets and are in the mood for something a little bit different then head on over for a taste of Africa. Enjoy the African clothing on the catwalk, explore a variety of food from across the continent or spend the day browsing the intricate and unusual African jewellery.

The African Market

Explore all that is Africa at Old Spitalfields Market.
