150 years of Portobello Market

Wow, we’re 150 years old. Or rather, 150 years young. Full of life and looking fine!

Since starting out in country lane leading to Portobello Farm in the 1860s Portobello market has become renowned the world over as a source of fresh produce, antiques, fashion and so much more.
