Portobello Road Market|
Portobello Road, W10
Nearest Tube: Notting Hill Gate
Fruit and vegetables are sold here throughout the week, but it is the big market that is held here each Saturday that the area is known for. This market is particularly associated with its antique stalls, as there are staggering 1500 odd dealers trading here - so if you love antiques you'll love this market.
The Saturday market runs for the whole length of the street and it is one of the best outdoor markets in London. It is jam-packed full of stalls, arcades, and antique shops which attract collectors and bargain hunters from miles around, and there is a distinctly fun atmosphere about the whole thing.
On a Saturday there are basically three markets in one: the antique section is in the south between Chepstow Villas and Coleville Road (the Notting Hill Gate end); a fruit and vegetable market runs from Coleville Road to Westway; and at the north end of the market you will find records, books, jewellery and trendy clothes along with a flea market.
All in all this market is extremely popular so be prepared for the crowds. Also be warned that there are lots of pickpockets in the area so keep a close eye on your belongings. But the good news is that there are lots of good pubs and cafes nearby where you can get refreshments after a hard day shopping.
