Hans & Gretel Treasure Trail

This treasure hunt will start at Hans & Gretel in Camden Market’s North Yard. Once you’ve received your clues, you’ll be lead on a voyage of discovery across Camden’s markets, stopping off at some very special sites and shops.

Location: Starting point - Hans & Gretel, North Yard, Camden Market


Children’s Entertainment

Some very special guests will be moving around the market with a few tricks up their sleeve to keep little ones entertained. Maybe you’ll see some juggling or magic or spot a beautiful butterfly that has just emerged from a cocoon… there might even be some artwork to collect, from caricatures to balloon animals.

Location: Our entertainer will be on the move across Camden's markets all day


Face painting

Your little ones can become a character all of their own with our professional face painters, who will be in Hawley Wharf’s Waterside Halls all weekend.

Location: Waterside Halls, Camden Market Hawley Wharf


Fantasy Foods

Camden Market’s traders have been hard at work recreating some of the most famous foods from childhood stories. What will your very hungry caterpillars eat first? Try the BFG’s bright green Frobscottle from Temple of Boba and Golden Tea, or Paddington’s favourite marmalade inside a hot churro from Churros London. Winnie the Pooh has been sneaking into the market to put his favourite honey on our dishes, from delicious honey cheesecake from Great British Cheesecake to a sweet and salty pizza from A’Do’Re Fritto. The Mad Hatters Tea Party has landed at Camden Tea Company, and there are slices of Bruce Bogtrotter’s famous chocolate cake at Dzrt. Can you try it all?
