I think it's pretty standard for every London-based blogger to eventually feature the flower market at some point so now it's my turn! I feel like Columbia Road is a place that only exists on Sunday mornings. I've never been there any other time, and I wouldn't be surprised if the shops were shut during weekdays. But come 9am Sunday, this place is buzzing, and it kind of reminds me of a little slice of Notting Hill in the East. But with flowers. A lotta, lotta flowahs.
Sanne and I are pretty partial to the lady that sells bunches of wildflowers, which dry beautifully. Seriously, we have some in our bathroom that are two months old and still going strong. Nuclear flowers. I recommend getting to the market before 10:30am (it starts at 8am). Otherwise you're gonna be shuffling through a wall of tourists.
