The Duke of York Square Food Market is located next to Saatchi Gallery close to Sloane Square tube station. Every Saturday the market sells everything from good quality cheeses and cupcakes to Malaysian cuisine and Moroccan food.
Originally the market was started by the upmarket food shop Partridges back in 2005. The aim was to give small producers and family businesses the chance to trade their goods in this expensive part of Chelsea.
London’s Portobello Market is one of the most famous street markets in the world. Located on the Portobello Street itself, it is the vibrant hub of Notting Hill.
Portobello market has a long history and began as a fresh-food market in the 19th century. The shops are lining along the whole street and it’s the charm of the colorful Victorian townhouses that turns the Portobello Road into a special vintage shopping experience.
