The Colours of Columbia Road

Columbia Road. Best known for the flower market on a Sunday, a cacophony of florists, market stalls, and buyers all crowd into the narrow street to browse the forest of flowers and plants on sale. As you join the slow procession, “walking” from one end to the other, it is no surprise many don’t realise that behind the stalls are rows of fascinating, colourful, independent boutiques. Hidden by plants and people, KOMPAS went to explore mid-week to see what hides behind.
