Where

Petticoat Lane is probably the most famous of all London’s street markets, and derives its name from its long history as a centre of the clothing trade.   During the reign of Queen Victoria the name of the street was changed to the more respectable Middlesex Street.  Although this remains its official designation the old name has stuck and the Sunday market held here and in the surrounding streets is still known as Petticoat Lane Market.  Despite attempts to stop the market it is still flourishing and always very crowded.  A huge variety of goods is on sale but there is still a bias towards clothing, particularly leather coats.  At the top end of the market, near Aldgate East, is an area devoted to leather jackets. As prices are not often shown haggling may be necessary.  The lively market, which attracts thousands of locals and visitors each Sunday, has plenty of fast-food outlets, many selling traditional Jewish food.
