Another Sunday Market @ Shoreditch

Pizza Eastでロンドンでの今年初のランチをとった後、ぶらぶら歩いて、Shoreditch High Street駅から東、ブリックレーンに連なる道に出ているマーケットを見て歩いた。昨年、Shoreditch High Street駅がオープンしてますます再開発が進み、ヒップでトレンディになりつつあるショーディッチにおいて、猥雑なイースト・ロンドン的雰囲気を色濃く残すこのマーケットは、かなり衝撃的。駅の横の果物・野菜の屋台を皮切りに、日用品や電化製品、文房具、自転車用品、古着、アンティーク、中古家具まで、日常生活に必要な物が何でも手に入り、イタリアやフランスの食品を売る屋台もある。が、売っている物の多くは、安物かガラクタ、もしかすると盗品も混じっているかもしれない。

We walked around a market on a street connecting Shoreditch High Street station and Brick lane, after the first lunch in London this year at Pizza East. It is quite a shock to see such a market with stereotypical chaotic East London atmosphere in Shoreditch, where is becoming trendy and hip after a series of redevelopment projects together with an opening of the new station last year. Starting with fruits and vegetable sellers next to the station, you can basically buy anything you need for daily life from household products, home electronics, stationaries, bicycle parts, used clothing and accessories, second-hand furniture, antiques and all kinds of bric-a-brac, as well as Italian and French food – but unfortunately mostly cheap stuffs and junk, or even possibly some stolen things.


Vintage shop, or just selling anything with a little value the lady has in her closet?

何故か、自転車パーツを売る店が多い。Brick Laneは盗難自転車を売っている事で密かに有名だが、そこで買った中古自転車をチューンアップするためか。

There are some vendors selling bicycle parts. Is it for a tune-up of a bicycle purchased from Brick Lane (known for selling stolen bikes)??


A vendor selling household products. There is some order up to this point.


A London version of a dollar-store.


When we entered a space supposedly used as a car-park on non-market days, it was a chaos – products and trashes were all over the place. There was a mountain of clothes, shoes and bric-a-brac. How on earth people find anything from it??


This sort of disorder is more like a market in developing countries, rather than London.


Graffiti behind is quite Shoreditch.


Antique? seller. We hoped that there might be something nice but…


We were overwhelmed by people and stuffs. I don’t necessarily recommend the market for tourists or friends, but just to show another side of London, for your interest.
