It’s had several names over the centuries, but Columbia Road was named in honour of the heiress and philanthropist Angela Burdett Coutts, who had not only built Columbia Market (now demolished) but had instituted a Bishopric in British Columbia.

The run of Victorian shops we see today were built during the 1860’s to service the population of the nearby Jesus Hospital Estate. Wood turning and milling factories peppered the area until the late twentieth century.

The Flower market began as a Saturday trading market, but as the Jewish population grew a Sunday market was established. The Saturday market lapsed, but the Flower market evolved. Initially this serviced the local population many of whose houses have small gardens.

Plants were brought by handcart from nearby market gardens in Hackney and Islington and market pitches were claimed on the day on the blow of a whistle.

Since the 1980’s the market has grown into one of international repute. Today a wide range of unusual shops complement it, turning the whole area into one of the most interesting shopping experiences to be had anywhere.

Coinciding with the weekly Columbia Road Flower Market, we operate a cafe in our courtyard every Sunday morning.

We offer Climpsons & Sons coffee; fresh Brick Lane beigels; baked-on-the-premises pastries, flapjacks & brownies; Organic juices & an assortment of cold beverages.
