Not long after I arrived in London, Ken knew he had to take me to see to Columbia Flower Market. To be fair, he kind of got me over excited about the whole thing by telling me about all the rows of amazing flowers that were dirt cheap. I'm sure I was looking at him like a kid hearing a story about a candy factory while he was telling me about this market- wide eyed and practically foaming at the mouth for these flowers.

Well, I'll tell you - it's certainly worth a visit. As MAD as it was (I mean, shoulder to shoulder, everyone screaming prices and flowers being thrown everywhere!), there was a lot of amazing florals to be had.  I only ended up getting this one bunch at the end of the market because I panicked and couldn't make a decision. Ken offered to make another run through all the people to look for a second bunch, but we opted to make our way toward some beer and food instead.

We ended up picking up some delicious food from the Brick Lane market, which is just a few minutes walk from the Columbia Flower market. We weaved our way through the people and eventually hopped back on the tube back to our end of town. It was a pretty perfect day in our new city!
