With its long and fascinating history (dating back to the 12th century) and despite recent uncertainties, Barnet market is getting back into its stride as a lively community hub. And rightly so, given the name of the town Chipping Barnet derives from the Anglo Saxon word for market, Chepe or Cheap.
Since it has been managed by Tyler Bone the tempting range of stalls has grown dramatically. It’s an ideal starting point for local food shopping with plenty of fresh seasonal produce with greengrocers, butchers, fishmonger, baked goods, deli specialities, coffee, chocolate and some very tasty streetfood vans.
Check the Market’s Facebook page for current details of stalls and any events taking place.
We’re lucky to have it, so if you’re in the area on a Wednesday or Saturday, be sure to pop along.
Opening hours: Wednesday and Saturday 8am–4pm
