More for Shoppers than Foodies Sep 30, 2016
This is a sprawling market so get ready to wander. There are several market areas with permanent storefronts and some pop-up looking "flea market" type stands. There's all sorts of junk to buy and you can easily spend hours browsing. Most of the food is concentrated in two areas (ask locals to point you towards the Lock or Stables Market). This is a pretty cool market but the foodie scene wasn't as great as I had hoped (still can't beat London's Borough Market for yummy eats). Note that the food options are mostly heavy on the foreign cuisine, so don't go expecting local British favorites. What I did love was the funky, slightly boho atmosphere. Buyer beware at some of the shops: there's a lot of cheap imported junk so be sure to check the labels (and the quality). Even if you aren't into shopping or eating, you can walk along the canal. Totally worth a visit if you have plenty of time in London.

The Alternative Shopping Scene Oct 21, 2013
Camden Town is an assault on the senses, as achingly hip bars rub up against outdoor marketplaces, frequented by Bohemian Londoners who shuffle through streets sound-tracked by the underground, left field musical scene.

Famous for its nightlife, Camden also boasts markets that will provide you with far more interesting mementos of your visit than the tacky, tourist trap places you'll find in the West End. Camden Lock Market is the stand out, its intoxicating fast food stalls a greasy, but tasty, accompaniment to the markets plying their wares, all alongside the canal, which is a lovely place to watch the barges ease their way through the lock.
