Chrisp Street Market is a marketplace within the Lansbury Estate in Poplar in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was the first purpose-built pedestrian shopping area in the United Kingdom, built as part of the 1951 Festival of Britain. It features a prominent clock tower, shops, small retail outlets, pubs, cafes, apartments, and 80 market stalls.
The Tower Hamlets London Borough Council transferred ownership of the shopping arcades along with the rest of the Lansbury Estate to Poplar HARCA, a locally based housing association, in 2006. This association commissioned architects to draw up a master plan for the market.
The market was the main focus point and filming location of E14: A Dying Trade, a short documentary filmed in 2011.
East End of London favourites such as pie and mash are available alongside Chinese and Indian food outlets. Chrisp St Market also hosts "Bite", a monthly street food market taking place on the last Friday of each month.
London Buses Routes 15, 115, D6, 309, D8 and Night Route N15 serve the market.
