Chapel Market

Category: Markets

Chapel Market is a daily street market in London, United Kingdom. The market is located in Chapel Street, The Angel, Islington, and sells fruit, vegetables and fish, as well as bargain household goods and cheap clothes. It is open every day except Monday, operating in the mornings only on Thursday and Sunday. The market is only 2-3 blocks long; many of the patrons are local, and food and wares for sale are primarily for daily use.

Notable Chapel Market pubs include the Agricultural at the extreme east end, an old institution that got its name from the historic use of Upper Street as a livestock route south into London and specifically to Smithfield meat market. The Salmon and Compass at the extreme west end of the market is a modern style pub catering more to a hip young crowd. In the middle of the market near to the corner of White Lion Street is The Alma Lounge, popular with an older crowd, and frequently full early in the day.

The street is also notable for M. Manze’s, a traditional pie, mash and jellied eel vendor whose first branch was established in 1902.
