“A gem”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

A definite must for a Sunday morning in London. The flower stalls are lovely with good deals to be found. There are lots of independent shops and cafes too which add to the atmosphere.

“Spoiled for choice”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If you enjoy London's street markets, you'll enjoy this one. The street is tucked away but within an easy walk of lots of tube and bus stops.As well as an amazing array of flowers and plants, there's the wonderful 'banter' of the street traders. Cafes and other shops open as well to create a great Sunday morning experience.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Although this place is slightly off the beaten track, it is well worth the effort for a visit. It was snowing on Sunday which may well have worked to our advantage as it meant that it was less crowded than I hear it can get. As a consequence there were also fewer flower stalls and so the shops were more accessible. There are some good places to eat and drink, which makes the whole experience more complete.
