Spitalfields Market is famous for its longstanding history, of gathering diverse traders and market stands in an area recognised for its wealth of different cultures. In 1682, King Charles II granted a Royal Charter to John Balch to hold the market on Thursdays and Saturdays. Today the market is famous for supporting artists, unique displays of goods, designer stores, outdoor events, street food and modern cafes, restaurants and bars.
Spitalfields Market has been one of East London’s oldest attractions for selling vast arrays of goods from handmade crafts to antiques to high-end fashion items.
Yes, dogs are allowed to join you on your visit through the trader and art market and public spaces – Bishops Square and Crispin Place, but we appreciate they are kept on leads wherever possible. Indoor cafes, restaurants/bars and store may not allow dogs or any pets inside, so please check before.
It was acquired by the City of London in 1920. In 2005, a redevelopment programme split the market from Old Spitalfields market which is owned by Ashkenazy Acquisitions. Read more about our history on our history page, Wikipedia or British History Online.
