Petticoat Lane Markets

Petticoat Lane Markets was established over 400 years ago by the French Huguenots who sold petticoats and lace from the stalls. The prudish Victorians changed the name of the Lane and market to avoid referring to woman’s underclothes. Although the street was renamed Middlesex Street in the early 1800s it is still known as Petticoat Lane Market today.

From Monday to Friday Petticoat Lane Market is located on Wentworth Street but on Sundays, it spreads out much further.
