Flower Market, Columbia Road - Part I

Yes, I said it Flower Market. I don't hate the flowers, i just don't like it when people get the ones with petals mixed up with the good stuff.

Today we have some pictures from Julian. He's a good flour man, so good he has taken pictures of more than one place, which means i'll post more from him in the future. Thanks Julian.

He thought it would be funny to go to London's Columbia Road Flower Market, to check out the flour. Genius. I doubt those market traders selling there lillys knew what hit them as Julian strolled straight passed them and into Maks News.

Which is a little disappointing, but as with all good local shops, it seems like they have the shelves full to the brim and have a little of everything.

Pretty standard (for a small shop), not fully filled, but faced. What more can be said.

3/10 - Bonus point for store location.

Columbia Road to be continued.....

a quick stop at One Stop

I thought that maybe a small tescos metro doesn't reflect the small "local shop" that well. Maybe they are not focused on the community needs and primarily the baker.

So popping into one stop, Oulton broad, Lowestoft was a bit of a shock.

One Stop Westwood Avenue

The arrangement is minimal, tidy, not interesting and expensive.

It is worse than Tescos and I hate that. I was expecting a couple of brands but less quantity. The price is understandable.

Overall a disappointment to the local bakers.
