Every Saturday in the Horse Tunnels, the various vintage collections are merged into one nostalgic megastore, with everything from women’s, men’s and kid’s fashions from the 1930s to 90s, to retro games and toys, furniture and records. There’s also live music, DJs and radio streaming on-site from Boogaloo Radio. So you can spend your long weekend vibing like it’s 1939 (or 1999, for that matter). For the peckish, vendors will be serving up their Easter specials, including The Flour Station’s tempting Hot Cross Bun Afternoon Tea. Sat 31st March, 10am-6pm, The Horse Tunnels (and weekly), more here.
FOOD: Gobble posh fudge
Fudge is not a foodstuff that inspires great longing in this office. But new artisan outlet Roly’s Fudge Pantry, in the foodie North Yard quarter of Camden Market opposite Enrique Tomas and the Cheese Bar, makes a pretty useful Easter gift idea for a sweet-toothed pal. The team whip it up in front of you in large copper cauldrons from an old family recipe; on our visit both the cherry bakewell and maple & pecan flavours were absolutely delish. North Yard, Stables Market NW1, more here.
FAMILY: Market Minis
An all-day family festival lands in Camden Market during peak-school-hols next Friday (6th April). With a focus on dance and healthy-eating, it looks to encourage kids to stay active during the break – crucial in the aftermath of the chocolate-heavy weekend just gone. As such, the schedule is bursting with a number of free events including kiddies Zumba, street dancing and nutrition workshops. The Market’s also hosting a belated egg hunt, an Easter trail dotting in-and-out of shops with sweet treats for kids in each store. There’ll also be face-painting and shoe-art workshops from Koko Art. Free, Friday 6th April 10am-4pm, across the Market.
