Shepherd’s Bush Market in Bayswater, London W12
- by CityWest Residential
Leafy Bayswater with its Georgian squares and trendy restaurants is popular with buyers looking for a luxurious property in this Central London neighbourhood. An added attraction is the presence of vibrant markets (like Shepherd’s Bush Market) within walking distance.
A little over a hundred years old, Shepherd’s Bush Market at W12, is an open-air market selling top-quality fresh produce, cooked food, beverages and an eclectic range of items including clothing, jewellery, fabric and furnishings. Popular with the locals, this bustling market temporarily functioning as a ‘Pop-up Market’ (the original site is being renovated), is an ideal spot to while away a few hours.
To pick up stylish women’s outfits pop into stalls 22 to 24 run by Kalra. Gorgeous children’s clothes can be purchased from Grover’s (stall 55) while Parris and Garcia (stalls 6 and 6A) sell lovely hats. For elegant menswear, drop into Kotak’s (shops 40 and 42).
A range of fine fabrics is available in shops 22, 23 and 29 run by Gurawar and at Goldhawk Road Chowdrey (shop 54), you can pick up unique pieces of jewellery. Plush carpets are on sale at shops 24 and 25 rented by Mills E. & Son Ltd., while Gupta’s (arch No: 187) is known for fragrances.
If you are feeling peckish, visit Laura’s Fruit and Nut Case Confectionary (shop 1). To indulge in a hot meal, drop by Farmawi and Yassine (shops 30 and 31) and Barsoum-Sandwich bar, at which you can also pick up a non-alcoholic drink.
Opening times: Mondays to Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Getting there: Shepherd’s Bush Market tube station and Goldhawk Road tube station is less than ten minutes away.
