I remember going to the flower market on Columbia Road several times as a child. We would go early, as it was only open early back then, and after my parents had bought some plants for the garden, we would have a tortilla from a Spanish café on the road.
Now, Columbia Road Flower Market, East London, heaves with people every Sunday. It’s open longer hours and is famous for it’s Instagram worthy flowers. I hadn’t been since I was a child, so this Sunday my parents and I headed there for a trip down memory lane. We arrived around 11am, and it was choc-a-block with people buying everything from colourful bouquets to plantable flowers, to bulbs to huuuge plants! We did find a Spanish café, but weren’t sure if it was the same one from all those years ago. It’s a great place to visit on a sunny day, and there are lots of nice places to have a bite to eat afterwards. And of course, if you are going to the market, you have to buy some of the amazing flowers!
