Portobello Road Market
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 31ST JANUARY 2013
The famous Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill takes place every Saturday although there are also antiques shops and temporary stalls selling a mix of second-hand goods, food and bric-a-brac from Monday to Friday. Running from Chepstow Villas to just under the Westway, it is a colourful, dynamic stretch of London that oozes trendiness and fun. On Saturday, it's huge, with over 2,000 stalls, selling everything from books to bric-a-brac and lace to Limoges - even fashion and exotic cooking ingredients are on sale. Thousands of people mill around browsing second-hand clothing stalls or choosing outlandish material. For those who have the patience to search, there are some fantastic bargains. This really is the place to shop-and-eat and then shop some more. It is best to go in the morning, by the afternoon you will find yourself getting a little flustered winding your way through the crowds.
