    Portobello Market: MARKETS

    Portobello Road was originally a track leading to a farm called Portobello Farm. On Portobello Road today you will find plenty of intriguing shops, including the many famous antique dealers. Portobello Market is really several markets in one, Saturday being the day when all are in full swing. You must head to this mile-long experience of hustle, haggle, colour and energy. Come here to buy your choice of antiques, arts and crafts, jewelry, fruit, veg and second-hand clothes. There are some talented and bizarre street performers to be spotted too.

    Portobello Green: Clothes and crafts by up and coming designers

    Portobello Green

    Just at the point where Portobello Road passes under the 1970s concrete monstrosity known as the Westway, the space under the flyover has been made over to small shops and workshops for local designers and artists to sell their wares. There's a small shopping arcade, and the terms of the leases specify that the products sold have to be made by the proprietors.

    The street market spills over here into a wider space full of clothes by young designers. You may have to rummage through some tat but there are bargains to be had here.

    What to buy: Unusual clothes, jewellery, crafts

    What to buy: Anything from food to antiques. I particularly liked the metal signs

    Alices, Portobello Road

    Portobello Road is famous for its market but also for the many antique shops that line the road. This is Alice's, one of the oldest shops in the area and probably one of the brightest too!
