What you'll do
We’ll meet outside the Earl of Lonsdale pub at the top of this world-renowned market. We’ll walk the length of the road, meeting traders, and tasting some of their produce. You’ll learn a little history of the market and the area. First we’ll check out the antiques and knick-knacks on display. Then it’s on to food, street food, fashion, more street food, and Golborne Road, where the market continues. Chat with traders and try an olive or two from my olive stall. I’ll point out interesting local shops, pubs and cafés, and locations from a famous movie set in Notting Hill. Stalls and bars you might not have found without a little local knowledge. We’ll finish at the end of Golborne Road and you can wander back up the market at your leisure to revisit the stalls or pub.
I have been, and continue to be, a trader on Portobello Road for over 20 years and know it like the back of my hand. I'm passionate about the market and the area. I know many of the traders, places of interest, and have a good knowledge of the history of the market and the area. For those wanting a more personal and exclusive experience I can now offer a private or single group experience that includes a meal from one of the many food stalls and a gin and tonic from the local gin palace The Distillery. Please contact me with enquiries.
