Two London markets in one weekend: this morning we went to Columbia Road flower market
for breakfast. Used to be our regular Sunday morning haunt when we lived in Stoke Newington.
Smoked salmon and cream cheese beigels eaten outside with a continual procession of plant-carrying people to watch.
Less touristy than Borough Market: I guess its easier for tourists to consume food than flowers.
Several buskers, of which ‘pluck’
were definitely the best.
The street now has loads of interior design and fashion shops: some good, some a bit twee.
One of my favourite jewellers, Buddug
has her shop there. Lovely sketchy graphic jewellery: great fun. Looks so spontaneous. It’s her black and white enamel
collection I really love, and this time some spoons
I hadn’t seen before.
