Hoxton Street Market

Established in 1687, Hoxton is the oldest street market in Hackney. Packed with East End spirit, and just a short stroll from Shoreditch, the market has recently been transformed and now boasts new-look market stalls. The market has played a key role in building a strong local community and economy, showcasing its trader’s products and the local retail offer.
