Hackney Flea Market began its story in 2013, starting off as a small one-off pop-up event. Ever since then, this London market has gone from strength to strength and gained a tremendous amount of followers and reputation in a short space of time. Hackney Flea Market now takes place every month, attracting vintage traders and shoppers from all over the country. Not only do the organizers host this market, but they also host other pop-up vintage events around London, such as Peckham Salvage Yard, Hackney Record Fair, and The Big London Flea.
Expect to find vintage clothes, vinyl records, glass and ceramics, salvaged European homeware, antique luggage, postcards, stamps, textiles, trench art, reclaimed industrial fixtures, atomic era electricals, mid-century Danish décor, and so much more. Hackney Flea Market gives local vintage entrepreneurs and creatives a space to sell their goods and promote their business.
This market is located on Stoke Newington’s famous Church Street, which means there are plenty of vintage boutiques to check out and carry on your shopping urge. Church Street is brimming with stylish bars, restaurants, and chilled out coffee shops – so you can stop off for a well-needed break after shopping.
Music plays an important role in the buzzing atmosphere at Hackney Flea Markets. Their sound system is sometimes manned by local DJs, or they put together playlists which are often an eclectic mix of obscure songs and vintage oldies. So, if you’re a die-hard fan of all-things-vintage, it’s well worth paying Hackney Flea Market and its other events a visit. You can easily whittle away hours rummaging through lost and found wares, salvaged goods, and retro keepsakes.
