Andrew Travels London – The Portobello MarketsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #travel5 years ago

Saturdays are when the Portobello Market is especially full of life. Street food vendors open their stands, crowds pour into one long meandering street and there’s an exciting energy in the air.

One of my favourite stands sells fruits and vegetables. Mostly cheaper than the supermarkets, the vendors sell in bulk for lower costs and the layout of the healthy foods with all the colours adjacent to one another makes my mouth water.

Acklam Village, a small area just off the Portobello Road, brings together a wide range of cuisines where the food is often prepared in large dishes which look so appealing. Because I already ate before my trip down to the market, I only bought a mixed fruit juice. The scents of the curries and grilled meats has me already prepared for next Saturday!

Hi Andrew, unfortunately I dont live near London. I live in Asia. So I am always intrigued with England and Europe. Steemit is a great place for me to "travel" to Europe everyday as I view all the interesting posts by everyone here! I hope to go to London soon....

Definitely makes one want to go and visit..

You would definitely love the Portobello Market! Do visit, please! :)

Looks awesome. London has so many cool markets!

Hello, @thewritelife! London does have many cool markets! Have you been here before? I just uploaded a new article, by the way, on the Barbican in the City of London!

Love Portobello Market!

So do I, @ladycrypto! Do you live in London? A day doesn't go by without me going down the road to buy some groceries, unless there's a "closed" day.

I was born in London and spent lots of time around Portobello. I live in Australia now but still miss it!

I have always wanted to visit Australia! Where in Australia are you from?

Come visit London! You can spend a lifetime here and never get tired of the city! :)
