Ridley Road Market

Ridley Road, Dalston, London E8 2NP

Ridley Road is the grittier of the two Hackney markets, running for over a hundred years, and nowadays mostly serving the African-Caribbean community. There are nearly 200 stalls selling chicken feet, plantains, a huge range of spices plus Ghanaian and Indian fabrics. It’s also a great place to pick up cheap fruit and veg if you’re on a budget.
