After my trip to Borough Market recently, I have the market bug and last Sunday Danny and I took a trip to Columbia Road Flower Market. The market is every Sunday from 8am-3pm and is of course the most beautiful flowers you will see at such great prices. As soon as you exit the train station at Hoxton you see everyone walking up with their bunches of flowers, eagerly I eye them up and walk by saying ‘I like them’ at every available opportunity.
Finally when you hit the market, it’s packed! The market is so fun with market sellers everywhere trying to sell you their sunflowers, because of course their sunflowers are the best. It was a lovely day on Sunday and the sunflowers were calling me for sure.
Surrounding the market are lots of little shops and cafes, a complete mixture that you don’t always know what you will find. There was entertainment courtesy of the man and his guitar and everyone was just having a lovely time.
I stopped in the sun for some outfit pictures and to show you this gorgeous Boohoo jacket that just blends in so well with the flower market don’t you think?
The trousers are ASOS jersey peg trousers and are the comfiest trousers, it really does feel like you have left the house in your pyjamas. These New Look shoes are perfect Aquazzurra dupes and after a test run a few times are now really comfy to wear and go with everything. Venessa Arizaga does some amazing bracelets and this ‘Howdy’ one is so cute, I definitely need to get more of these.
I was pretty pleased with my bunch of dutch roses and sunflowers and so we took a short walk to Shoreditch to Tramshed. I have been to Tramshed loads before but the menu was a little different this time so I thought I would share it with you. First things first about Tramshed is that you can’t help but notice the giant Damien Hirst art installation above your head. When that’s over with you can settle into the bright airy space and get cracking on the food.
We started off with a giant Yorkshire pudding and pate to share, I love this pudding so much it’s the biggest and tastiest and great to share for a starter. It was Sunday lunchtime, so I was feeling daring and went for a Zombie cocktail, whilst Danny had a cider.
For mains I had a big juicy Sirloin steak with bearnaise sauce, chips and salt and vinegar onion rings. If there was one thing I would recommend ever ordering at Tramshed it’s the onion rings, they are bites of heaven in your mouth. Danny had the delicious half chicken and also chips and sauce.
For dessert I was stuffed but the strawberry & white chocolate cheesecake was calling me, I’m not a big fan of cheesecake but this was so light and lovely, that I’m starting to reconsider. Danny had the credit crunch ice-cream with chocolate sauce, full of little bites of honeycomb.
