Portobello Road Market

150-year PGMC logo

The Portobello and Golborne Road Markets can trace their roots back to the 19th century, and have flourished since to become London's leading antiques market. The market is an exciting and vibrant destination which draws in millions of visitors every year. The markets are diverse by nature, creating a bohemian atmosphere, which is enhanced by the vintage clothing and delectable food that is available.

The side streets leading from Portobello Road teem with designer boutiques, luxury brand stores and cafes serving the Notting Hill area. Westbourne Grove is probably the heart of the Notting Hill shopping experience and home to Turquoise Island, the most architecturally distinguished public lavatories in London.

Shop Portobello is a website created by market traders to help visitors and customers find their way round the markets, see what's on offer (and when), put together shopping lists, and find unique items and bargains!

How to Get Here

Portobello Road and Golborne Road markets are adjacent and can be approached from either end. See Directions to the market.

Portobello and Golborne Road Markets Throughout the Week

Monday through to Thursday Portobello and Golborne Road markets serve mostly local residents with fresh fruit and veg, day-to-day items and - in Golborne Road - an international selection of hot foods. Although the street markets normally close at 1pm on Thursday, there is a small book, art and plant market under the Portobello Green canopy that stays open until 5.30pm.

Friday is the busiest weekday, with a greater number and variety of stalls. Keep an eye out for our excellent meat, fish, eggs, cheese, olives, olive oil, fine vinegar, bread, sweet and savoury tarts and pastries from Popina and others, and of course our renowned fruit and vegetable stalls including the Mushroom Man featuring many varieties of everyday and exotic mushrooms and truffles when in season. A gap in street trading may exist beyond Oxford Gardens, but Golborne Road is a destination well worth the extra five minute walk. On your way, take time to inspect the latest Portobello Wall Arts Project installation along the long brick wall.

Saturday is the busiest day by far, when the stalls, shops and arcades of the antiques section are buzzing from early morning. The rest of the markets are generally full, especially in fine weather. An eclectic mix of vintage and second-hand fashion and new goods can be found north of the Westway. This is also where the newest traders enter the markets, so don't spend all your money before you get there!

Sunday the street markets are normally closed, but there is a bustling market featuring original and vintage fashion, accessories and jewellery under the Portobello Green canopy by Thorpe Close and international street food at Acklam Village Market under the Westway by Acklam Road.
