Queen’s Market London – A Guide



The Queen’s Market sited near Upton Park tube station is enormously popular. The market is from 100 years and voted as top market. Queen’s Road Market is identified as Queen’s or Green Street Market. The street market started in Green Street between East Ham and West Ham. At first the stall holders were Jewish from Whitechapel and the East End, selling clothes and vegetables but then pushed into Queens Road in 1904 to allow for the passage of trams.

The market reflects the cultural diversity and is prominent for offering variety of eateries from African, African-Caribbean and Asian region under one umbrella. The fruits and vegetables are cheaply available in the market. You can find 80 independent stand and 60 local shops selling everything moth beans, gunga peas, Halal meat, fresh dates and paw-paw. You will get some exclusive authentic and exotic spices in the market.

After every few steps you feel like you’ve entered a different continent .The variety is astounding. Not only is it financially very affordable, it is a place that brings together a community. The stall holders are often full of friendly banter. In the market you will find everything you can think off from fruit and vegetables to herbs and spices, toys, flowers and even kitchenware and the neighboring Green Street is crammed with the restaurants offering a range of delicacies from the Indian sub-Continent or visit Tropical Takeaway, a friendly Jamaican van in the same vicinity.

Queens Market operates on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday during 9am-6pm and midday to 6pm on Sundays.
