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.

Established in 1851.

Originally King Street but renamed in 1946 as Plender Street in honour of William Plender a former High Sheriff of the County of London.

As in the case of Inverness Street Market, Plender Street Market represents a remnant of Camden Town Market which moved off of Camden High Street after the late nineteenth century electrification of horse-drawn trams.

The market was still on the High Street in 1878: “Saturday evenings the upper part of the street, thronged as it is with stalls of itinerant vendors of the necessaries of daily life, and with the dwellers in the surrounding districts, presents to an ordinary spectator all the attributes of a market place”.—Edward Walford

Journalist, author, and broadcaster Bernard Levin grew up on Plender Street.

The market once ran to 90 pitches but had reduced down to five stalls by 1983.
