Confession: Before going, I had never heard of the Portobello Market in London. But I have to say that it is HANDS DOWN the best street market I’ve ever been to.
Essentially, Portobello Road has a stretch of stores in Notting Hill, and on Saturdays, there are vendors that pop out on Saturdays to sell different things like antiques, clothes, art and other fun goodies.
I don’t remember too many street performers, but I do remember stopping for these guys:
Oh, and there’s food too. It’s been three years since I’ve been, so I don’t know if this paella vendor is still there.
Such an amazing place and made me keep saying to myself, I wish we had a market like this back home! (Although it’s possible that I may have said this out loud.)
On a related note, my London photo book came in last weekend, and I am so happy with it!
I usually order the hard cover option, but this time, I wanted to see what a soft cover would look like. I have to say I like it A LOT…but I think I might be a hard cover person. Still, the quality is great and flipping through it made me happy. I’ll share more details of the book and its content in the next post.
