The Flower Market takes place every Sunday but the shopkeepers host a range of other events during the year.
Every Sunday, the street is transformed into a bustle of foliage and flowers. Everything from bedding plants to 10-foot banana trees are up for grabs. The air is intense with the scent of flowers and herbs, and the sound of barrow boys chanting “Everthin’ a fiver”. The stallholders either grow their own plants or import them from around the world.
Situated in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, the market is a leisurely walk or cycle ride from any of the surrounding boroughs – Islington, Hackney and The City of London.
Columbia Road flower market and shops are open on Sundays from 8am til 3(ish!). Columbia Road is in the East End, sitting at the edge of the City, with Shoreditch to the west and Brick Lane and Spitalfields also nearby.
