For an alternative shopping experience, head to the Grand Union Canal in Paddington between 29 August and 2 September and enjoy perusing the produce on sale at Paddington’s floating market.
The wares on board the market barges will include a tempting selection of produce: locally grown fruit and vegetables, fresh bread, cheese and charcuterie, as well as beautiful bunches of fresh flowers from Freddie’s Flowers tricycle stall and Clifton Nurseries.
You'll also be able to pick up unique and unusual gifts made by local artists and crafts people. Amongst the sellers will be silk Lamar Scarves, Aequill with their sweet-smelling scented candles and Imazi Naturals soaps and bath salts.
Once you’ve filled your bags (for life) with tasty treats and perfect presents, enjoy relaxing by the water with a glass of English sparkling wine from the London Shell Co. pop-up wine bar, or a pint of award winning Crazy Dave's Cider. Happy shopping.
