Portobello Road Market is one of London’s most well know markets for tourists and locals a like. Open Monday to Saturday from 9am with the main market day being Saturday when the antiques and bric-a-brac stalls also open and the crowds flock to this West London market. What I love about this market is that it is organised into different sections, and even on the busiest days there is still room to move.
Portobello Green Market near Ladbroke Grove tube station is the place to find everything vintage from clothing and jewelery to bric-a-brac and music. You may also find some new fashions and accessories here as well. Acklam Village is a great place to stop for lunch as it has delicious International street food and live music on Saturdays and is always a little quieter than the rest of the market. Between Tavinstock road and Talbot road you can find all your new fashion items, arts and crafts and fresh and prepared foods. This is where you can find the delightful
Petitacosa stall with her delightful crochet puppets and the beautiful terrariums from magic garden. Antiques and collectibles can be found on Portobello road closes to Notting Hill Gate tube station. Although this market is really crowded on weekends, it is easy to navigate as it runs the length of Portobello Road and if the markets become too much for you, it is well worth venturing off Portobello road to wonder through some of the fantastic designer shops in the area.
