It would not be a surprise if I said to you that Camden Market is one of a kind in London (I am tempted to say - in the world, but we'll come to that later), this amazing place can be categorised as vibrant, memorable and full of character. Unfortunately it is also one of the most crowded places that you can find in London after Oxford Circus maybe. For someone like me, who likes to chill in leisurely nice places, it is a real pain and it can totally spoil my mood; that is why if you still want to enjoy Camden markets on the weekend I would strongly advise you to go in the morning.
To begin your day, there is nothing better than to enjoy a hot and delicious cappuccino in Camden Lock Village, you will find in the middle of the place a coffee stall which makes yummy hot beverages. My advice: Enjoy drinking it along Canal Market. Depending on what you want to do next, you can then go to do shopping, to chill or to bargain-hunt into the different markets; here you will find for sure stalls selling everything you're looking for.
These include vintage clothing, antiques, souvenirs, books, bric-a-brac, cut flowers, music, furnitures or jewellery. Food stalls are also one of the most representative activity you can find in Camden Markets, but please be careful and take care; don't trust all of them, anyway that's a little risk to take
If you are a tourist, you may want to keep everything you like but you're most likely to be laden with bags full of new purchases so take note of all the products you liked and get them off myMzone later!
