Sweet and small, Hackney's new Sunday market
Popular plate: For a taste of old England, head to the What the Dickens? stall and admire their Victorian uniform while eating a foot-long steak sandwich.
Talk of the town: In 2002, nearby Clapton Road was famously dubbed Murder Mile for the number of gun-related deaths, but over a decade later its put this infamy behind it.
Handmade rum-filled chocolates, freshly baked focaccia, gourmet scotch eggs and Japanese pancakes are just some of the gastro fare of Chatsworth Road Market. But having only reopened in 2010 - after 20 years in hibernation - this is one market that most Londoners don't even know about.
Clapton was once more famous for gun crime and drugs, but the multi-coloured Victorian houses, tree-dappled parks and glut of independent shops were ripe for gentrification, and now Chatsworth Road is one of the most up-and-coming areas of East London.
The new incarnation of the market is in its infancy, but already has a friendly village fete vibe. And unlike Broadway Market, you can browse unperturbed by crowds... for now, at least.
