Columbia Road Flower Market

Whether you are nicely settled in London or you are touristing around with a spare Sunday, it is well worth that you pay a visit to this oasis of greenery, flower and chillax of Columbia Road. Its Flower Market runs every Sunday from 8 o’clock  onward.

If you haven’t partied all night like crazy  are lucky enough to get there early, you can enjoy a bit of space of your own while doing your flower shopping.

3 bunches a fiver is my usual shop, to get while sipping a coffee from Lilly Vanilly bakery in the courtyard next door.

For serious shopper, best deals are found after 3 pm, when the hordes of people begin to move elsewhere and the stalls begin to pack away.

The shops on the street are lovely, and they sell pretty much anything from design objects, vintage furniture, flower pots (of course!), stuffed foxes and animals, magnetic maps,vintage clothing, knitting pattern, fresh oysters, Bansky posters and so on and so forth.
