Lovely to browse the flower stalls but it does get very busy! Be prepared for crowds.

I found the plants great value for money but the cut fresh flowers are expensive in my opinion.

A great place to pick up some fresh flowers.

The shops on the side sell vases as well.

If you can’t afford anything just pop along for the atmosphere and take some pics.

If you are a lover of flowers you will definitely love this place (no entry fee as well)!!
We were lucky to find a 9 am to 5 pm parking within walking distance of the market from JustPark.
The place is amazing and has a wide collection of flowers and plants. To avoid crowds, best is to arrive early. A must have is Andrea's hot chocolate with spice. You can easily spend 2 hours over there.
Rest of the day, we went to Petticoat lane market after having lunch at Pleasant Lady Jian Bing in Old Spitalfields Market. On our way we enjoyed the vibrant street art in Shoreditch.
Overall, a lovely way to spend your Sunday in London.

My boyfriend and I strolled through around 12pm in the afternoon and it was very crowded. However, we enjoyed the food options and seeing all of the incredibly affordable and beautiful flowers. I would say an hour or two is enough time - it definitely wasn't as big and overwhelming as Portobello Market. I would definitely say this is a must do for any first time visitor to London!

Lots of pretty flowers and plants however it was VERY crowded and hard to walk through. There is also not really anywhere to sit and enjoy a drink.

Lovely flower market and lots of small individual shops.
We went about 2.30 so a lot less people and flowers and plants reduced in price. I love this market.

A really nice place to visit and very popular as it was crowded. Many of the shops had queues but it was still fun to walk around and buy some of the lovely flowers and good value plants available.

The market is very beautiful but it is incredibly busy so be prepared for that. You can actually get good priced flowers and plants here especially if you haggle like the locals.

This market is such a busy vibey place - flowing over with stalls of flowers and houseplants, plus a little street with numerous individual shops that you won't see anywhere else. So much to see and look at. Shops included Vintage clothes, antiques/bric a brac/, old LPs, coffee shops, pubs, jewellery. I had the best few hours here. And then what a choice from the market stalls with all those flowers and house plants. Loved it.
