Columbia Road Shops & Flower Market

Columbia Rd.
London, England, United Kingdom

A Sunday morning tradition for many decades, the Columbia Road Flower Market is a bright, bustling event that has become one of the most beloved in all of London. Beginning at 8:00 a.m., hundreds of vendors set of shop, filling the historic road with gorgeous, aromatic blooms and jovial shouts of “Three for a fiver!” To coincide with the market, more than 60 independent shops and cafés also open their doors along Columbia Road, inviting market-goers inside to savor bold coffees and flaky croissants or to browse gorgeous vintage wares, contemporary art, scrumptious sweets and a variety of fashion finds.

Insider Tip:

Early birds beat the crowds, but lazy birds who sleep late are often rewarded with the best deals as vendors try to sell the last of their wares.
