Worth visiting to get beautiful flower and pots. Very busy on Sundays around midday. Try going around 1.45pm to 2pm to get discounted prices and bargain a little bit.

An incredible market but so crowded on a Sunday morning that it was difficult to buy. Both cut flowers and potted plants.

Went here after breakfast at the premises cafe. Market very popular and packed despite the extremely cold, but sunny weather. Good selection of flowers/plants available at reasonable prices. Could have bought a fair few but no way to get them home. 💐🌺🌹

You'll never know what you're going to find during beautiful Sunday walks. There are always small details in streets, that make you feel: you're in London! Here's a cool artwork by IMPREINT found in Columbia Road Flower Market in front of fancy Nelly Duff gallery....More

What I should have said is that it is not the flower market, it is the shops that are on Columbia Road. There was someone selling Christmas trees.
