Columbia Flower Markets

If you're looking for a lovely place to wander on a Sunday morning in London, look no further than the Columbia Flower Markets in East London.  

A pretty street full of vendors selling the freshest blooms from exotic wild flowers to simple bunches of daisies and carnations. The smell of herbs and lilies is pleasantly mixed with handmade bakery treats and fresh coffee from the nearby cafes.  

Tiny art galleries selling gorgeous works from local artists and old fashioned lolly and stationary stores mean the morning is lazily whittled away as you wander from store to store.   

An absolute joy that I will visit again & again.....
