About Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Market goes back to 1869 and was originally a large neo gothic structure more akin to a church or a civic building rather than a market. It contained about 400 stalls selling food and flowers. The stall holders preferred working out on the street and over time they graduated into Columbia Road where they still are today. The lovely building that once housed them was sadly demolished in 1958.

The local French Huguenot population were keen on cut flowers so flowers dominated the sales from then on. They were also keen on caged song birds too and one of the streets pubs is still called ‘The Birdcage’ as an echo of this time. The market then was on Saturdays though many of the local traders were Jewish and this caused issues with their Sabbath so by an act of Parliament it was changed to Sundays and Sundays it still is.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
