Columbia Road Flower Market in Bethnal Green is a road of Victorian shops off Hackney Road in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and is open on Sundays only.
Columbia Road Market is London’s principal flower market devoted to selling plants, flowers, garden fittings and gardening equipment at reasonable prices and is the best flower market I’ve ever been.
The nearest Overground stops are Hoxton and Shoreditch High Street from either it’s a 5-10 minute walk. The nearest tube is Old Street.
It’s worth shopping around, don’t be afraid to barter and prepare for it to get very busy. The market is popular with locals and tourists.
After a morning of bargaining and loud market traders it’s likely you will be hungry, and this area is also a great spot to grab brunch or coffee.
You can head behind the stalls and down traditional side streets to find cute cafés, independent restaurants, delis, shops, antique dealers, vintage stalls and small galleries.
For a bargain, visit when the market is winding down (around 2-3pm) because that’s when the traders reduce their prices to shift the remaining stock.
