London's Camden Market is composed of six distinct adjoining retail markets, located in near Camden Lock on Regent's Canal in northern London. The markets contain over 1,000 unique shops, stalls, bars, and cafes and are one of London's busiest retail destinations.In the 19th century, the Camden Lock area was an industrial site for distilleries (and warehouses) producing world-renowned gin. In 1974, a market started with 16 traders selling antiques, jewelry, and arts and crafts. The area's gin-distilling traditions are long gone and the markets now fill the buildings.
There are cafes and food carts everywhere, offering every imaginable cuisine.
