The Columbia Road Flower Market in the East End of London |
Simon Burgess

So goes the witty banter from stall to stall across this usually quiet London street. Every Sunday (from 3am if you’re an early riser) Columbia Road is transformed into a busy market centered on the Flower Stalls that are set up the whole length of the street which, along with the cool little cafes, vintage shops and ‚off market‘ stalls and shops, make this a great place to go to get something a bit different, look for a bargain or just to spend a few hours wandering and people watching. Many people combine a visit to Columbia Road with the nearby Brick Lane Market which is far bigger and busier… great if you’re a visitor and trying to see as much as you can in a short space of time but there’s more than enough at Columbia Road (especially in the February sunshine as it was when I visited) to feel like you’ve had a great day out without pounding too many pavements…….
