Covid 19 Information
Our markets remain open as part of our commitment to helping you support your local economy and shop for essentials in a safe, outdoor, environment.

Please remember to follow the government advice on social distancing when going outside and visiting your local markets. This includes: stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people; limit contact with other people; travel on foot or by bike if you can; consider all other options before using public transport; wash your hands for 20 seconds on a regular basis; and if you cannot social distance and you’re likely to come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, wearing a face covering is recommended.

Queen’s Crescent is named for Queen Victoria who liked to ride in her carriage to West End Lane, Hampstead.

Market traders moved from Malden Road to Queen’s Crescent in 1876 when electrification works were undertaken on Malden Road to replace the horse-drawn trams.

Shortly before the market arrived, the Sainsbury’s family also moved to the street to bring up their family in what was then, one of London’s leafy suburbs. Queen’s Crescent once sported three branches of Sainsbury’s. It is also the original home of Patak’s Indian foods.

As with other traditional street markets, Queen’s Crescent Market was at its busiest in the 1980s and even featured in the third episode of the popular television show Minder.

Queen’s Crescent Market is a great place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh bread, kitchen and cleaning supplies, bedding, fashion, street food, cut flowers and plants, and much much more.

Apart from the stalls there is a fantastic selection of independent shops and cafes trading seven days a week.
