Camden market has all the things that you would expect from a market in the capital. There’s artisan food and drink, prepared by small scale businesses and individuals, each constructed with love and care you would struggle to find in a mass produced product. There are flowers, bright and full of sweet scents, lining many tables and ready to brighten up even the darkest of days. Bric a brac is everywhere, ranging from classic vinyls to amazing accessories for your kitchen.
What really makes this place special though, is the amazing arts and crafts section. You can find everything that you would ever want in that regard. Handmade ornaments mingle with beautiful paintings and kitsch decorations. It’s a chance to see some of the most creative little enterprises in the entirety of the city. Nothing you find here will be mindblowing: you’re not going to be seeing top end art from the latest CSM graduate. What you do get though, is a celebration of everyday art, a beautiful collection of modest creations that are rarely collected in such numbers. It’s not big but it is especially clever, hence the market’s persistent appeal.
