Hard to walk through some sections on a busy day. Not really made for slowly walking and browsing as you can't really stop and look.
Great bargains to be had though, and some truly gorgeous plants. Would definitely recommend if you have something specific in mind and want good quality plants.

This market has been here more than 100 years , I've been visiting over 50 years and it's always colourful lively noise and a great slice of East London life, or at least it used to be , the stall traders complain that visitors come to look and don't buy as much as they used to and a lot of the shops are quite boutique and hi end the hours have changed used to be always from 6 am till 2 pm sharp but now you won't see anybody till after 10 and strip down dosnt happen till after 4 pm. Still flowers trees plants coffee and cake , it's still a great visit.
What a wonderful place Columbia flower market is! If you go by car, don't expect to park before 1330 due to parking restrictions in area. Public transport there is excellent, so better option. We usually take our 6 and 9 year old, they love going to the cafes and have gluten free cakes and drinks. The flower market itself is usually heaving but well worth the effort! The shops around are nice too with creative and different homeware, clothes and accessories.
The best of the best place to spend a Sunday, either 30 minutes or 6 hours you could laze around, buying flowers/ plants/ seeds, listening to the string of musicians, stop into one of maybe 25 locally ran independent shops. The best food, drinks and coffee options to offer. The flower market on Sundays is 10/10 and 100% worth going to Columbia road on another day for the shops and restaurants / pubs too!
A small and cute flower market. Huge variety of flowers and plants. It's a good place to do a big shopping for the house and garden. Garden and decorating accessories shops all around. The market is only one day a week, Sunday, and allows crowded.
