It's not just the city of London that can claim to trade the biggest currency markets in the world. London's boroughs are also famed for their food markets. Like its population, London's markets are mixed, allowing you to eat your way around the world. Walthamstow, with its mix of traditional cockney traders, is Europe's longest daily market. Just west of Walthamstow, in Hackney, you'll find Ridley Road jam-packed with hallal chickens, chopped goat, half pig carcasses, ox hearts, and fruit and veg. For a more gourmet organic experience, check out Broadway market or Borough markets at the weekend.
