Raise your hand if you're tired of London posts.
Guess whose hand is not raised? This girllll's. So if yours is.. Well then, get over it. ;)
You're in for a treat today. I'm giving you a first hand look into one of the happiest, most hidden places in London. Ok, maybe it's not hidden per say.. but it's definitely off the beaten path. Let's just say I got lost approximately 6 times trying to get there.
Every Sunday, Hackney's Columbia Road (located in London's trendy East End) shuts down to automobile traffic and plays host to a number of boisterous vendors selling the most beautiful flowers on Earth. White tents lining both sides of the street house fresh cut stems and potted plants- all waiting patiently for their new owner to come scoop them up and place them in a clear vase or a clay pot.
I visited the Columbia Road Flower Market twice while I was in London- the first time to buy flowers and the second time to take photos. But I can guarantee you if I ever call London home, you'll know where to find me every Sunday morning. :)
Here's what I saw:
What do you think? Would you visit the Columbia Road Flower Market?
Have a beautiful Sunday my friends!
