Camden Passage Market specialises in antiques and is located in Islington. It resides down a pedestrian passageway off Islington High Street that leads to Islington Green.
Camden Passage Market has become a world-famous venue for antique dealers and aficionados, and collectors, interior designers, and decorators flock there week after week looking for that special something. The market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Feel free to haggle
Feel free to haggle, these dealers are usually open to negotiation when it comes to prices. Be aware that this is no flea market; these are for the most part professional antique dealers specialising in a variety of goods.
If you have questions about any aspect of a particular collectable, you are likely to find someone here that can help. You might not stumble across a priceless collectable at a jumble sale price, but you might just find that extremely rare piece you have been dreaming about to complete your own collection.
