To market, to market…

16 Apr

There are so many amazing markets in London, all of them full of colour, character and people. With so many to choose from, you could spend a whole weekend frolicking from one cobblestone-street market to the next, and still leave you wanting more. We visited two of London’s best markets over the weekend…

[Borough Market, London Bridge]

If it’s good enough to feature in Bridget Jones, who fictionally lives right next door above The Globe pub, then it’s definitely good enough for us. Crowds are attracted to the Thursday-Saturday market, which first started over 200 years ago! Come here to taste the most delicious British and international foods, purchase the freshest of the fresh fruit and veges, cheeses, jams and preserves, fish, poultry and a variety of other meats from around the world.

[Columbia Road Flower Market, East London]

A feast for the eyes and the nose, Columbia Road Flower Market is THE place to go to pick up a bunch or two of your favourite flowers. You can get everything here from herbs, exotic bulbs, flowering pots and plants from the UK and abroad. The flower merchants compete against for each other to get your custom, but whether you’re here to buy or just to gawk, it’s worth a visit. A charming street lined with equally charming cafes and shops, it’s definitley the go-to place to spend a lazy Sunday…

    No wonder it was so noisy the other day when we were
    Skyping – what crowds at the Columbia Flower Market. What beautiful flowers! The foods on offer are very tempting too.
