Last weekend I went to the New Covent Garden flower market in Vauxhall at what felt like the crack of dawn but it was probably just after 7 o’clock when I arrived. The flower market is absolutely incredible – if you have never been then I recommend you make the trip at some point. I’m lucky that it takes me less than 30 minutes to get there but it would be worth a longer journey than that. It takes some getting used to as this really is a traders market and there are wedding florists and events planners there buying lots and lots of flowers and foliage. It is entirely set up for people who know what they are doing and I was lucky enough that on my first trip a friend showed me the ropes, but all the guys (and they are all men) were really friendly and always happy to help. The market sells everything from flowers to foliage, ribbons to vases, candle holders and pretty much anything you can think of that a florist might need! It’s a real treasure trove.
