Columbia Road Flower Market

CRFM 10One of my favourite things to experience in any city is a Sunday. Everything slows down, and the more relaxed vibe is easy to enjoy. A perfect Sunday for me is brunch, and a visit to a market. London is known for fantastic markets all over the city, but when I read about the Columbia Road Flower Market I was very excited to visit. Sunday Markets are always enjoyable, but this one is particularly special. The only way to describe it is floral heaven!Columbia Road 22Columbia Road AFlower Market MainColumba Road 26Columbia Flower Road 1Columbia Road 23Columbia Flower Road 9Columbia Flower Road 17 Columbia Flower Road 10CRFM 3CRFM 8Located in East London, near Shoreditch is Columbia Road. Every Sunday, the street transforms into the most wonderful flower market. It’s literally a sea of hydrangeas, roses, sunflowers and so much more. The vendors drive in early from outside London to Columbia Road. I loved hearing their accents and witty bater they use while selling their blooms. We grabbed a latte at the top of the street before making our way down the delightful row of flowers.

I wandered around the market with my best friend Kristy, and dear cousin Alexa who have both lived in London for a year. Neither one of them had attended the flower market, so it was a lot of fun discovering the various flowers and foliage together. If I lived in London, I would be a regular here. From beautiful cactii, to fiddle leaf figs trees to every flower you can imagine, just looking at all the incredible plants available was fascinating. After spending an hour walking through and taking lots of photos, we made our way to another favourite Sunday activity, Brunch!

It’s one of the most wonderful neighbourhoods, filled with fantastic restaurants, street art and character. We enjoyed a fantastic Brunch at The Book Club before making our way down Brick Road to Spitalfields Market. Going through these photos is making me excited for another magical market, the Christmas Market! It’s one of my favourite Holiday traditions and I can’t wait for all the Christmas cheer!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. Bring on the Christmas season!

  • Ohhhh how lovely! I stayed in Shoreditch last Spring but never made it to the market! Thanks for bringing it to life via pics! I love how important flowers are in London. I love the look of flowers on a very old building <3

    • Isn’t Shoreditch awesome?! I loved the vibe, and all the incredible street art! Next time you’re in London, you’ll have to pop by Columbia Road. I’m happy you enjoyed the photos. Thank you for stopping by Style Calling xo

  • What a beautiful way of describing towns/cities on a Sunday! You make a great point – and one that becomes even more noticeable during the sparkling festive season (all the lights up and less people crowding around them; bliss!). You look great in this leather jacket and I love the sunglasses 🙂

  • That’s what I love about Sundays, slow and warm. Pair it with a nice Sunday classic playlist. I am sure you learned some witty rebuttals from English salesman.

    • Ah yes you have to go! It was the best Sunday ever. Shoreditch is such a cool place to explore too.
      Enjoy!!

  • Kiri Yanchenko

    Oh I am so jealous you have access to such a great flower market that happens in a decent part of town at a decent hour.
    We have flower markets in Sydney – but they supply all the trade/stores so in order to get anything good you need to go at 3 or 4am.
    And they are noisy, dark and dirty…
