"I'm a huge fan of Portobello Road market because of the diversity of products available and the small, unusual shops in he area. It's a great place to browse for antique and beautiful jewellery, and there are loads of cheap and second-hand clothes, with handmade designer garments and lots of vintage denim and leather on offer. For more exclusive buys, the shopping arcade on Portobello Green has some funky little boutiques, and there are some great food stalls in the area that are brilliant for fruit and vegetables, bread and cheeses."

Portobello market is a vibrant, interesting market, selling a wide variety of things. it's not as large or lively as Camden market, but it's certainly worth looking at. It is best on a Saturday when all the stall holders come out in force (much smaller, far less interesting fruit & veg markets are held there in the week.)

At the weekend there are a very large selection of clothing stalls near Ladbroke Grove under the Westway, selling a wide variety of very interesting, unusual and alternative clothes as well as some other more usual stuff. if you want something unusual to wear, then this is the place to come!

Under the Westway end there are some bric-a-brac stalls that sell almost anything from retro style objects to records. they may be worth a look for collectors as they sell all sorts of objects some of which may be highly desirable to add to someoneís collection!

At the top end of the Market nearer to Notting Hill Gate, there are a large number of Antique & Second hand stalls selling a wide variety of unusual things. All sorts of antiques are available, again these vary from week to week, but if you are into Antiques and old goods, then this part of the market should be a treasure trove for you. You could get the antique object youíve been searching for. Itís definitely well worth a look if thatís what you are into.
