stables market

The biggest market

Stables Market is the largest and most colourful of the markets. A converted Victorian horse hospital, it provides a seemingly endless maze of cobbled alleyways, converted warehouses and covered outdoor eating areas. Everything from cyberpunk to vintage clothing, esoteric record stores and unusual furniture.

opening times





Most of the shops and a fair number of stalls are open throughout the week - but the market really comes alive at the weekend with a huge number of stalls selling everything from secondhand clothing and cds to food and antiques.   Stables has a huge selection of antiques tucked away at the back of the market - where TV presenter Chris Evans has his celebrated stall. Some outlets are open during the week but for the best selection go on the weekend.  

There are a lot of inexpensive food booths here - offering Chinese, Indian and other cuisine for jest a few pounds - buy at the booth and take your meal to a nearby table to eat. There is also a large licensed restaurant in the middle of the market.
