Archway's town centre has two main streets - Junction Road and Holloway Road, plus businesses located at the foot of Highgate Hill. Every Saturday we have a street market with a distinctive mixture of traders. See www.archwaymarket.org for more information.

The combination of small and large retailers enables you to do all your main household shopping and find something more unusual such as gifts, toys, fine wines and interior design.

For food shopping is diverse with Oriental Food on Junction Road (Chinese, Korean and Japanese), An Apple a Day on Holloway Road, or the Yildiz bakery selling Turkish specialities and an extensive range of Cypriot products. For fresh bread and cakes you have a choice including the traditional baker Stagnells and offerings from further afield at Deli Junction (both on Junction Road). We have a number of fruit and veg shops inlcuding Tahir Halal grocery (which also sells halal meat).

From florists, estate agents and newsagents, we have an award winning giftshop - MAP on Junction Road - which has a treasure trove of items.

If you're looking to do a bit of DIY, there are hardware, lighting and electrical retailers. And if your bike needs attention, we now have a bicycle shop on Junction Road.

Archway Town Centre is very compact! Most of the shops are small and independent, there is a huge range of choice within five minutes of the Tube.
