Where

Columbia Road Flower Market, set in a road of Victorian shops, is the capital’s most colourful and sweet-smelling market.  It was established in 1869 as a covered food market set in a neo-Gothic palace, but the traders preferred to conduct their business on the street and the venture failed.In 1958 the short-lived market building was demolished to make way for today’s flower market.  A visit to this market, with its flowers, shrubs, bedding plants and other horticultural delights, is one of the best ways to spend a Sunday morning.  As well as stalls there are a number of shops selling fresh baked bread, farmhouse cheeses, antiques and garden accessories.   Recently stalls offering gifts, perfume, jewellery, furniture etc have increased the size of the market.
