Filling your home with floral scents there’s no better place to potter than London’s Columbia Road Flower Market.
The road is filled with bucketfuls of beautiful blooms in every colour imaginable and there is always a new season of blooms.
There are bulbs, herbs, shrubs, bedding plants and cut flowers for your vase at home.
Stallholders shout out their deals to draw you in. Some of whom are the third generation in their family to trade. Jokes and flowering facts are flying around.

And so are big, genuine smiles.
There are lovely shops, independent galleries, foodie stalls, groups of friends, street performers…
And puppies burning with curiosity.
You’ll find the market on Columbia Road every Sunday. Turn up as things start to wind down at around 2 pm for the best bargains, or as early as possible (9 am) if you want to guarantee yourself the pick of the crop and fewer crowds.
