Londoners do love their markets. They seem to come out in droves, no matter the weather. We toured of delights of various East End Sunday markets. First up were the Columbia Road Flower Markets in Shoreditch, which took its flora very seriously. There East End marketers flogging their wares with thick Cockney accents, and a profusion of dogs being taken out for walks.
In the back alleys were art galleries, home ware shops, cafes and little bakeries, which sold very tempting treats.
We moved on to neighbouring Spitalfields, home to the famous market, and also Brick Lane, renown for their curries. There were plenty of produce on offer, and also food stalls from every type of cuisine you could think of.
East Enders are particularly renown for their sharp wit. This made me giggle a bit.
