Ridley Road Market


The Ridley Road Market takes place right in the centre of Dalston, opposite Dalston Kingsland Train Station and next to Kingsland Shopping Centre.

It started with about 20 small stalls towards the end of the 1880s but now there are more than 180 stalls offering a range of quality goods at very competitive prices.

You can choose from a range of goods such as foods from Asia, Africa, Caribbean and Mediterranean to the latest ladies fashion wear.
