Camden is home to at least nineteen regular markets, eight of which are public street markets managed by the Council. The other markets are privately managed and held on private land and in school car parks.

From the ancient Leather Lane to the new markets in redeveloped Kings Cross and from the international tourist destination of Camden Lock to the traditional local markets of Chalton Street and Queen’s Crescent, our markets are an important part of the culture, history, and economy of Camden.

Employing over 4,000 people, Camden’s markets provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and create a diverse shopping experience for those who live and work in our borough as well as visitors from around the world.
