Don’t you need any flowers or plants? Never mind. You’ll have to experience this: Columbia Road Flower Market. It is the cutest market in London. The atmosphere is friendly and it is in a walking distance from Brick Lane. The colours, the smell, the lovely little street – everything makes it worth at visit. And I’m lucky living right next to the it.
The market takes place every Sunday from 8-9 am until 3-4 pm. There are always a lot of people at the flower market so you better get there in the morning or around 3 pm.
Christmas time is coming up and Columbia Road has four Wednesday evening markets on the 29th Nov, 6th, 13th and 20th December from 5pm to 9pm. Lot’s of mulled wine, Christmas trees and decorations. And you might find nice gifts in the interesting and independent shops too.
Bus: 26, 48 and 55 to Queensbridge Road.
