Ezra Street Market
Ezra Street Market is a small gem hidden in a courtyard, to enter via Ezra Street (London E2). The courtyard can serve up to 10 stalls. Visitors of the nearby Sunday Columbia Road Flower Market pass by this little set-up and leave the market with a coffee to go and a hot bun. However there is more to find here; French cheese, honey, sausages, olives, tapenades, coffee, croissants and lots of vintage treasures (from French Creuset pots to Aran jumpers).
Shaun and Carlos manage Ezra Street Market for many years. Their stall with tailored vintage design pieces, books, and decorative objects has been my Sunday to go to for many years. They have a nose for the good stuff.
The named Market Managers once told me that they have been long time traders at Portobello Road. This market is an important source of inspiration and a starting point for many brands, designers and artists. Emilie lived nearby. On a daily basis she strolled along the canal towards Golborne Road and Portobello Road.
In spring | summer of 2015 Emilie started with a stall at the very end of Portobello Road nearby Pizza East. Shaun and Carlos offered her to try the Sunday Ezra Street Market and it turned out to be a success.
In winter emilies sold hand sewn gloves in lambskin and nappa leather. In summer, Turkish hamam towels, Moroccan baskets, swim trunks and more. For every season, emilies got you covered with quality stuff for a small price.
The traders at Ezra Street make this little market so special. It is at this market that Emilie has learnt the tricks of the trade. The traders are dearly missed. When you have plans for visiting London, do visit this little gem. The Sunday market opens at 8am and is closing down from 14pm onwards. The address is Ezra Street, next to number 7a, E2 7RH London.
