Do you know about London's most secret market?


Roll up, roll up, there's a new London market in town. And this time it's on the water. Make room for this five day festival in your August must do list.

Have you been to Paddington Central lately? Have you ever wanted to have a nose around some of the barges on London's canals? Then the Paddington Floating Market is where you want to be at the end of this month.

From 29 August to 2 September, there will be fresh bread, flowers, fruit and veg, cheese, charcuterie and more - all being sold from barges and along the pretty towpath around Paddington Central.

Pick up organic fruit and veg from The Onion Seller barge, flowers from Freddy's Flowers' mobile trike, local honey and chilli oil, sourdough from Breadwinners, who help empower refugees with employment and Priestlands Birch who sell birch products from Exmoor. Plus handmade soaps, candles and lots more.

Plus don't miss the opportunity to bag a table canalside from restaurant barge, the London Shell Co, or sip English fizz from M Wines. It's the perfect weekend day out, where you'll come home loaded with goodies.

Just don't forget your out and about zero waste kit.
