Today I want to share one of my preferred places with you: Portobello Road Market. It is one of the largest markets in the world and it has food, fashion and numerous antiques and collectibles.
It is open every day, however Fridays and Saturdays are the best! Starting with fruits, vegetables and amazing food, further down the road you can find amazing vintage clothes, new fashion, antiques and the most breathtaking accessories. The best way to end the day is at one of the local cafés and patisseries!
My favourite bit of the market is the corner with military equipment. Geoffrey Walsh sells World War I and World War II items such as medals, badges and even used gun cartridges. It’s an insightful stroll in time and I never get tired of exploring it!
One tip though: the earlier, the better! On the busiest days with most of the stalls, the crowd can be pretty tiring and overwhelming.
