Lots of stalls to browse through here - lots of similar goods on them. My son particularly liked some canvas pictures, but the prices were rather high. Came home and found them on the internet for much less. Some of the other stalls on the higher priced side too, so good for browsing in our opinion.

This market is located parallel to Jubliee market, connected in an H-like shape. Some of the stalls offered arts and crafts that interested me, some did not. The quality of goods/artists can't compete with juried markets I've seen in other places, but it was fun to browse for a short while. I did pick up several fun things for myself... More

I love this area as the stalls are unique and each time I go I find something new to myself or new to the marketplace with the stall holders being helpful and friendly too There was less here this time for me which is a shame but the goods seemed to be quite similar in themselves

A nice market to walk through and do some shopping. There are a combination of indoor and outdoor stores. There is an open area where you commonly find someone performing there.

The Apple Market is right at the centre of the Covent Garden area and is much smaller in area than it used to be although there are still a number of stalls here that all sell unique hand crafted goods from the UK and bring great culture to the area for both locals and tourists alike Recommended that you visit...

A small covered market with a number of stalls selling handicrafts, jewelry, and countless small gift items. There is a medium priced restaurant in the center as well: Jamie Oliver. A very tourist oriented area.

I spent a couple of hours here over the weekend with my girlfriends. We had a wonder round the market and purchased a couple of quirky Christmas presents, before stopping for a bite to eat at a restaurant nearby. The market is tastefully decorated for Christmas and a treat for those that enjoy looking at decorations etc, the tree looks... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
