“Wonderful Sunday morning outing”

Colombia Road Shops & Flower Market
Ranked #85 of 765 Shopping in London
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I had read about the flower market in Time Out so dragged my boyfriend along a few weekends ago... It was a great morning, we loved seeing all the flower stalls and browsing through the gorgeous little boutiques either side of the market street. The flowers and plants are incredibly good value compared to florist shops near where I live, but we couldn't be bothered to carry them with us so just window shopped!
It is all very small so gets VERY crowded (we arrived at about 10am and it was already packed!) but as long as you aren't claustrophobic or in a rush it's fine. We enjoyed a lovely brunch in one of the small cafes at the end of the street and then walked down Brick Lane to Spitalfields. I'm taking my mum back this weekend!

First time at the flower market this weekend and it was just fabulous! Amazing flowers, great characters selling all of them and just a nice thing to do on a Sunday morning.

Get there early to avoid the almost standstill as you walk through because of the crowds, it opens at 8 - if you are there before 10 you should be fine... and then head for a coffee/breakfast at one of the cafes near by or just sit and listen to the live music or browse the galleries and markets! Can't wait to go back.
