Broadway Market features in these AIL lists...

Our favourite London markets
What was once a run-down fruit and veg market evolved into the hippest place to spend your Saturday. Since radical gentrification hit this strip of street in Hackney the stalls have long since ditched their old cargo of apples and pears. Hog roasts, cheese cakes, art books, meat and vintage clothing stalls give the locals what they want, and if the number of bugaboos is anything to go by the rest of London and its families too.

The best places in London that serve salt beef
Not a venue per se, but Ivan Lester has been serving salt beef to Broadway Market since most locals can remember, which probably isn’t long, but hey. The salt beef isn’t quite the greatest in London but nothing beats a Saturday stroll with a pile of salt beef between bread at the end of it.
