Notting Hill Farmers’ Market: A car park behind Waterstones seems hardly a place for some of the freshest and most delicious organic produce you can find in London, but don’t let that stop you! If you appreciate knowing where the food you eat come from, you’re in the right place. The food you buy here goes straight from the fields to your dinner plate, without any middleman and coming from farms within 100 miles of London.

Planning a day with the kids after the market
The Notting Hill Farmers’ Market is very close to the Princess Diana Memorial Playground, otherwise known as the Pirate Ship Playground owing to the enormous Peter Pan inspired ship in the middle. After a shop through the market, the gated playground in Kensington Gardens promises to be busy on a Saturday with nice weather, but really fun for the kids.
There are sand areas, small houses to climb in and out of, swings for big and small, ladders and slides, a music area, a water pump and a tunnel.
After the kids have had their fun, you can wader up to antique-filled Portobello Road and find the spice shop where they have every possible mixture of spice on the planet.
