sunday markets

if you like to get out of bed accompanied by bird song on a sunday, you can just about make it to brick lane market. the most original pieces are snapped up in the early morning. the brick lane part, north of the train tracks, is where you can meet the original eastender. there are some dodgy looking geezers selling everything from bicycles, videos, mobile phones and goldfish to dentist chairs. it pays to haggle. brick lane market is open sundays from 08.00-14.00. if you prefer a more up-market atmosphere you can take a short walk to spitalfields market. the huge old market-hall houses exclusive second-hand clothes, trendy new designers, crafts and bric-a-brac for a good price. spitalfields is a popular meeting point for sunday-brunch. spitalfields market is open sundays from 09.00 -17.00.
