Why locals love it

The Columbia Rd Flower Markets have become a routine Sunday habit for the locals of Hoxton, Shoreditch and Bethnal Green. Once a week the air becomes thick with the scent of exotic plants, fruit and flowers both locally grown and exotic, as locals gather to get their weekly fix of well priced food, independent coffee and bric-a-brac browsing.

Why you should visit it

Flowers aside, Columbia Rd is lined with sixty independent shops comprising of deli's, antiques and gardening stores, café's and restaurants. This is a great place to spend the morning shopping, eating and soaking up the atmosphere, and the sheer influx of hipsters can only mean you're onto a good thing. Surprisingly, everything is quite cheap.

Special tip

Many of the shops are also open during the week.

This is one of my favourite places to visit on a Sunday morning. I go at least once a month. The atmosphere is great and they are lovely eateries around. Brick Lane and Spitalfields are close by too and well worth a visit. It adds to the whole experience.

Nice market for a Sunday morning, make sure you get there early or you'll have to fight with the crowds. Lots of interesting shops and cafes in the area
