I visited today after a Street Art tour in Shoreditch & found the quality of the goods to be of a very high standard. The ladies at The Curious Yak were very helpful & service was excellent at all the stalls.

Lots of food options and small crafty shops that add energy to the area. The shops are often pricey but a lot of them are unconventional and unique! Spitalfields has become a lot more commercialised in recent times but still has a charm to it....More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
