Whether it’s songs to go with your sarnie at lunchtime, or a background music to a socially-distanced catch up with friends, it’s a great excuse to get out and about this weekend.

See you there!


We are so excited to welcome everyone back to camdenmarket as a place to sit, eat, relax and reflect whilst spending time in the fresh air.
   Closely following government guidelines, from tomorrow, we are reopening our yards as a place for visitors to spend some socially-distanced time in the sun and eat from one of our many restaurants and street food operators (open for collection and delivery only).
   Markets are so much more than places to buy and sell. For centuries, they have been meeting places for the local community to come together and spend time. Whilst we are in the process of making small steps towards a new normal, supporting our traders as they return to the market, Camden Market will continue to uphold it’s values, as the beating heart of Camden and a place for people to meet and spend time in a socially distanced, responsible way.
   We hope to you there very soon, here’s a list of the traders you can expect to find in each area of the Market (for collection or delivery only):

The Camden Grocer
Kuku Riku
It’s All Greek To Me
Philippe Contincini


Zala Grill 
Only Jerkin’
Camden Pizza
Ghetto Grillz


Yaki Box
Highlander Game
Magic Falafel
Churros Camden


Dutch Pancakes
Fish and Chips
Asador Argentine Steaks

Keeping our visitors and our traders safe


As we begin to welcome visitors back the Market, we are committed to keeping both customers and our traders safe and feeling comfortable. 
The practices we have put in place to do this are as follows:

A strict ‘one-way’ system enforced across the Market site
Floor markers that display good social distancing (at least 2 metres)
Tables and chairs set out in a socially distanced manner, for customers to sit and eat their food
A strict cleaning regime throughout the Market
Queuing spots outside shops and directional way-finding arrows
Security guards who are on hand to help direct, and  limit the flow of pedestrian traffic at entrances and ‘attraction’ points (Amy Winehouse statue, Cyberdog etc.)
Hand-sanitiser stations throughout the Market, available for all visitors to use

For the foreseeable future, traders will also be expected to adhere to factors in line with Government recommendations, including wearing masks and gloves at all times; limiting the number of customers entering at any one time, maintaining a strict cleaning regime, and accepting card payments only.  The recommendations will be upheld and supported by the Market management team.

Ghetto Grillz

How to Make the Reuben Bagel

Think you know bagels? You know nothing, until you’ve tried the Ghetto Grillz take on the New York Reuben: a gooey, cheesy, zingy, steaming hot meat sandwich stacked with juicy layers of salt beef, cheddar, Russian dressing and sauerkraut.
Co-founder Marisa Capaldi and her brother Phil spent over a year developing their classic-with-a-twist Reuben until they got it perfect. We don’t have that long, so who better to ask for a foolproof guide to doing it DIY.
Scrap rye bread.
Bagels are better because they absorb the acidity of the cabbage, the creaminess of the sauce, the gooeyness of the cheese, crisp up nicely on the outside and hold the whole thing tight. Ghetto get theirs from Brick Lane’s Beigel Bake.
Make your cheese mild.
If you want your cheese gooey, which you do, use a mild cheddar. A New York Reuben will traditionally be made with Swiss cheese but a good mild cheddar packs a bigger flavour punch and melts like a dream.
DIY the dressing.
Shop bought is a no-no – you want to play around with the flavours and tailor it to your taste buds. Russian dressing is essentially a mix of mayonnaise and ketchup, but you can add a drop of Worcester sauce or smoked paprika for a little kick, and even put chopped gherkins, dill pickle or onion in it.
Use the best-quality salt beef.
It’s about getting a cut that falls apart and melts in your mouth. Kettyle Irish Fine Foods, a family-run meat supplier is the best in the business. The cows are grass fed and the meat is salted in a way that makes it perfect for Reuben making.

Supporting Camden Market's traders and Independents

Let's Cobble Together....

In this current climate, we are standing by our traders and independents who have decided to stay open during this time.  Their businesses are really important and we would encourage you, if you feel well enough to do so, to support them in their time of need.
Support can come in many forms and doesn’t have to mean entering the Market itself. Many of our traders operate via Deliveroo, Just Eat and UberEats whilst many of our retail traders are selling via their website. Even commenting, reviewing or engaging with our brands on social media can help them to feel the love at a time that feels very hard on many small businesses.
Help us to share the love for all of those that make Camden Market truly unique.
Please keep an eye on our social media channels, as we will be sharing ways that you can support our traders everyday.
