Portobello Road in pictures - Stores, Food & Vintage

Here are a few of my favourite pictures of the middle part of Portobello, stretching from beyond the antiques section down to Portobello Green.

1. Portobello Radio - Vintage is making a comeback and this is the perfect place to flip through vinyl...

3. Portobello is full of lively bars and "Ukai Tiki " is no exception, particularly on Saturdays when it's packed from morning to night...

9. Exotic-looking mushrooms - I couldn't resist taking this shot, because these specimens of fungi looked so delicate and appealing.  Eventually, I bought some and, I can tell you, they tasted divine!

10. Fruit stall - Portobello is full of stalls like these (that were very popular, all over London, when I was growing up) selling fresh fruit and veg at pretty competitive prices...
