Visiting Harringay for the first time to check out the market? Then, why not take in a few other sights, sounds and tastes while you’re in our lovely neighbourhood?
Shopping and drinking
Yasar Halim; a Green Lanes institution, this Turkish supermarket has a fit-to-bursting grocery section and bustling bakery next door
The Salisbury; the amazing interior of this Victorian pub on Green Lanes featured in Chaplin, starring Robert Downey Jr and Spider, directed by David Cronenberg
Big Green Bookshop; they’ve got a stall at the market, but check out their HQ up near Turnpike Lane
Art and architecture
Alexandra Palace; it’s worth the hilly schlep up from Harringay for the wonderful view alone
Turnpike Lane tube station; the Grade II-listed modernist gem was designed by the architect Charles Holden
New River; constructed in the 17th century to bring fresh water into London from Hertfordshire, the waterway flows through Harringay. Why not follow it through Stokie and up to Islington or northwards to Enfield?
Parkland Walk; a hidden urban gem, this 4.5 mile nature reserve follows the path of a disused railway line from Finsbury Park to Highgate and is easily accessible from Harringay
Finsbury Park; the largest green space in Haringey includes a boating lake, cafe, skatepark and playground
