The Traditional Walthamstow Market is in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, is the longest (though not the largest) outdoor market in Europe. It occupies all but the last 100 metres of Walthamstow’s High Street. It is reputed to be a mile long, but in fact measures approximately one kilometre.
The 19th century Marsh Street, a rural lane, was transformed into the High Street by Victorian expansion. The street market dates from 1885. Today it is the centre of Walthamstow, with the main rail and tube station, bus station, post office and Central Library, and most of the commercial development and activity located around the High Street.
The High Street area has a diverse, ethnically mixed population whioch brings toghether a colourful close knit community. The market has kept a traditional cockney feel whilst absorbing influences from the diverse cultures of the area.
