Flower Market

Not just greens
If you want to hear East London’s renowned costermongers touting their wares with their raucous cockney accents, then this is the place to go. Every Sunday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., Columbia Road is transformed into a sea of plants and flowers. Other stalls sell all manner of things that could, by quite a stretch of the imagination, serve some sort of function in the garden. There are various little boutiques and cafés around the market that invite visitors to look, shop and take the weight off.
