Brick Lane is a street in East London, England, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city’s Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and is known to some as Banglatown. It is famous for its many curry houses and its great sunday market!
Sunday Up Market first opened its doors in September 2004. With over 140 stalls selling fashion, accessories, crafts, interiors and music, it is undoubtedly one of London’s most exciting and imaginative markets.
The Old Truman Brewery has a history of supporting artists and designers, and with this in mind UpMarket aims to be a platform for designer-makers to sell direct to their customers. Many things you’ll find here are one-off bespoke items, produced by the stall holders themselves. You can find everything from edgy women’s wear, customised men’s clothing, high fashion, and beautifully tailored children’s clothes to handmade jewellery.
UpMarket's famous food area, with cottage-industry style passionate caterers creating home-to-market food has already found a huge fan base. Ethiopian hand roasted coffee, Turkish specialties, lovely Moroccan dishes,
Spanish Paellas and Empanadas, hand-rolled Sushi
(done in front of you), Japanese sweets and savoury pancakes, Carrom Cafe’s Lassi, Chai and Indian Street Snacks, Thai food and Caribbean sea bass and fried
plantain sandwiches’ It’s a long list. Giving you everything you possibly want; good grub and unique styles, Sunday UpMarket is the perfect place to wile away your Sundays.
You can read on the site that opening times are 9 to 5 pm but don’t go there before 11am or you will not find anything, looks like brick lane people are a little lazy on sunday :)
