Portobello Road Market

On a Saturday Morning, Luluscious and I decided to go to Portobello Road Market… and maybe grab a quick bite there πŸ˜‰

A really lively street in Notting Hill on Saturdays… where you can find lots of vendor booths set up selling antiques, clothes, food, and much more… I tried to snap as many pictures throughout our walk in the market so you can get a picture and a feel of the place through my lenses πŸ˜‰ Let’s go now… shall we?

Lots of fun stuff to check out… but also VERY crowded – I must be careful while walking and taking pictures now πŸ˜‰

Different activities too… a band playing music! Nice

Moving on… and walking around to check different booths/stalls

Ohhh nice… I like this one πŸ˜‰

And All Saint store… with its antique Singer sewing machines

Oh and I had to snap this picture of Hummingbird Bakery… loved by most Kuwaitis heheheh

Also… lots of Christmas preparations at this time of the year… Christmas tree anyone?

The weather was SO COLD… the smell of food being cooked was such a tease… everything was appetizing at this point lol

The crepes

A bakery

Different kinds of paellas

But we resisted everything since we wanted to have a falafel sandwich from Falafel King at the end of the road πŸ˜‰

Now thats funny πŸ˜›

We were really enjoying our day and shopping from one stall to the other buying random stuff… but it was just a fun thing to do I guess

I really wanted to make more pictures, but a lot of them placed “No Photo” signs in their stalls/shops

I also took pictures of random colorful houses in the area… something Notting Hill is famous for πŸ˜‰

No trip to London is complete if you do not drop by Notting Hill Protobello Rd Market… pretty easy to get to too πŸ˜‰ By bus through MANY routes! I believe we took Route 27 OR underground’s Central Red Line (or Taxis if you prefer and have lots of things you bought to take home)

  1. Where is falafel king!

  2. I love Portobello Road. Notting Hill is where my grandparents are from. I love the connection and I tell my kids to be proud of their paternal heritage being true Londoners dating back to the late 1500’s with the same surname. The area is well worth a visit by any tourist who want to see a slice of cosmopolitan modern London.
