The 9 Best Market Stalls — From Brixton To Portobello Road

Whether we're bopping to reggae in Brixton, scarfing down cheese samples in Borough Market, haggling over prices on Petticoat Lane, or picking through sundresses in Greenwich, there's no better way to while away a lazy day and support local traders at the same time than hitting up one of London's many bustling bazaars.
Naturally, we've always got our eyes out for stalls that peddle more than just moustache-print jumpers, faux Banksy screenprints, and tea dresses covered in flocks of swallows (soooo many swallows). After crisscrossing the city and elbowing more tourists than a bull in Pamplona, we've pinpointed nine vendors that stand out from the pack, thanks to independent design, incredible vintage finds, and a bit of innovation. Read on to see which stalls you should be swinging by this weekend.
