The Floating Market
Paddington Central’s Floating Market is a five-day celebration that brings together all the best in street food, local artisans, seasonal organic produce, live music and more.
From Wednesday 29 August to Sunday 2 September barges along the Grand Union Canal will open their doors to local vendors selling freshly baked bread, cheese, charcuterie, olives, cakes, fruit, veg and fresh flowers. Along the canal towpath, pop-up stalls will be offering fresh produce, delicious street food and hand-crafted items from talented designers.
Get your flower fix at Freddie’s Flowers tricycle stall and Clifton Nurseries. Lamar Scarves, Local Honey Man and Sunwar Foods will takeover Paddington Central’s very own Pioneer Barge and will be selling hand-printed scarves, local honey and chilli oils respectively; meanwhile the Onion Barge will be offering organic fruit and veg as well as other sustainable products.
Market stalls along the towpath include Bread Winners, a bakery that empowers refugees into employment; Priestlands Birch, who will sell handmade birch tree products from Exmoor; Woza Biltong; McKinley and Paget selling plant-powered home fragrances; Aequill, selling handmade scented candles; and Imazi Naturals selling handmade soaps and bath salts.
In addition, Paddington Central’s bars and restaurants will be serving up their own food and drink samples and you can enjoy a drink canalside from London Shell Co.’s pop-up English sparkling wine bar, M Wines or Crazy Dave's Cider.
The Floating Market is the perfect spot to enjoy with friends and family on Paddington Central’s vibrant canalside.
