Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Road Flower Market in East London is my favourite market in London.  With East End charm and banter galore it is always a colourful experience.   Originally a flower market it has grown from selling herbs, plants and flowers to being central to a  thriving community of vintage stalls and independent retailers and galleries.  If you like photography it’s a brilliant destination.

If you prefer a slower pace without too much hustle and bustle get there soon after 8.30to take your pick.  If you want a bargin and are prepared to barter for it rock up closer to closing time at 2pm and leave with your arms full of seasonal blooms.   We made a flying trip today to pick up some flowers for our new Spring window…Anna Jouli has created a beautiful mythical creature for us in glorious technicolour…I will post pics of the new window tomorrow.
