Unbeknown to many, St James's Church is a little oasis of Piccadilly that holds a daily market. The market seems more like a shop without a roof though because of its location on a busy commercial street near Waterstone's, the largest bookstore in Europe. On Tuesdays, an antiques market is held, while on Wednesday right through to Saturdays, a crafts market takes place, selling everything from clothes and trinkets to food. It's a fun place to shop, especially during the Christmas week. Check website for other details.

I had never heard of this market and found it, by chance, on a recent trip to Piccadilly. I decided to have a look and liked what I saw. A comparatively small market but packed with interesting goodies from around the world. Russian crafts, Indian silks, clothes, cushions, pictures, jewelry, watches and so on. Even traditional London memorabilia, including some amazing photographs of London and other parts of the world; the photographer himself was the stallholder. The market is in the St James Churchyard (on Piccadilly) and is not far from either Piccadilly Circus or Green Park stations. As Arnold once said, 'I'll be back'.

however, you'll see that it's both true, and flattering. With more food stores than its neighboring Greenmarket , Grainger ...
