The Big London Flea is North London‘s largest indoor vintage market and is a paradise for bargain hunters. It is located on the ground floor of a former cinema, an ideal space to house a few vendors and welcome in the shoppers! Found in the busy heart of Dalston, this rare flea market offers a friendly atmosphere, as well as plenty of collectible items to be discovered. It takes place on just a few Sundays throughout the year, so be sure to check their website so you do not miss out.
The stallholders at the Big London Flea are handpicked by the organizers of Hackney Flea Market, whose vintage events now also include Peckham Salvage Yard, Hackney Record Fair, The Big London Flea, Peckham Record Fair, and Walthamstow Flea Market. They take care to ensure that the vendors are varied each time, so there is always something unexpected for even the most regular of visitors. This philosophy allowed them to build a reputation as the go-to place to find amazing one-of-a-kind and personal treasures. A wonderful variety of sellers are picked for these antique markets. Some are veteran vendors from other established markets, others are locals having had a good loft clear-out, and a few stalls are manned by up-and-coming designers selling limited editions of handmade goods.
Over 50 different vendors take part in the Big London Flea each month. These passionate traders sell an amazing mix of salvaged, one-of-a-kind, lost and found objects and handmade items. On any typical market day, shoppers will find 20th Century furniture, vinyl records, twee glass and ceramics, handcrafted jewelry, salvaged French homeware, antique luggage, vintage clothes, curiosities and collectibles, textiles, kitchenalia, reclaimed industrial fixtures, electrical items, and much more.
The Big London Flea wishes to welcome shoppers from all walks of life to browse through the stalls and find a special item to bring home. Whether a seasoned antique collector or first-time shopper at a vintage market, there is something here for everyone. Not only all tastes, but also all budgets are accounted for here, so it is a great shopping experience for everyone who attends. Cafes are also open on the days of the flea market, run by local bakers to provide refreshments to shoppers and vendors alike.
