Camden Lock Market - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This panorama shows part of Camden Lock Market. On the weekend this open area is covered with various stalls, many of them selling food. The market also extends into the buildings, full of various arts and crafts. This area is often clear during the week, but the satellite view of the Google map of Camden shows just how crowded with stalls this part of Camden Market is at the weekend.

Camden Lock Market is one of the major attractions in Camden drawing people from all over the world. As the name suggests, the market is right next to Camden Lock on the Regents Canal in London. The market occupies former warehouses which became disused after 1970.
Camden Lock Market started out as an arts and craft market but has since expanded to sell all sorts of other items as well as food and drink, second hand clothes, books and jewellery. Many of the out-door stall holders only come here at weekends.
The market is one of several in the area, which are grouped together and known as either 'Camden Market' or 'Camden Lock'. Next to it is the Historic Stables Market, the largest part of Camden Market, which used to stable horses used to pull barges along the canal. On the eastern side of Chalk Farm Road is Camden Lock Village (previously 'Canal Market') which sells clothes. Further south towards Camden Tube Station along Camden High Street are The Camden Market, another food market, and Inverness Street Market which used to sell fresh food and vegetables but has recently declined and now mostly sells clothing and other small items.
