Columbia Road Flower Market
I love going to see the gorgeous flowers in an array of colours, and to feel the bustling vibe. There is often live music, and couples and families strolling around. You always see people around east London with flowers wrapped in brown paper and you know they’ve been to Columbia Road. The street is also full of independent shops full of creativity. They start setting up at 4 am and open at 8 am, though I’ve never made it there before 12 noon.
Check this old London flower market out on a Sunday. Grab a coffee from one of the many cafes down there and enjoy the flowers and the buzz of people. My tip would be to get there later on as it is less crowded. Definitively after 2pm.
This is a great Sunday market but warning it does get busy as it is very popular amongst visitors and locals. Its great to see the traders working and selling their wares and getting in amongst the hustle and bustle. You can also pick up some great deals on house plants and flowers. If you want to…
Unique Sunday market where you can find all types of flowers and plants. Also plenty of small cafes and shops.
8-2pm on Sunday. This place is fun to see the flower market, grab a coffee, croissant or bagel and see some great independent shops. Arrive early to avoid the crowding especially if it’s a sunny day.
The hustle and bustle of Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday is a must...the flowers are gorgeous, the food is delicious, and great for shopping too...
“Market on Saturdays, lovely to visit the market and go for a nice stroll in the park afterwards.”
“Beautiful big park with lakes, lovely cafes and a beautiful walk to Victoria Park Village.”
“The market is only on Sundays. Clothes, book, bits, street food. It's a close walk from Columbia Rd flower market. ”
“The original East London marketplace with loads of retailers, restaurants, market stalls and food traders. Open 7 days a week, a great day out for all ages!”
