The Notting Hill Life

Ever since I was a child, visiting the Notting Hill Carnival with my Grandmother, I wanted to live here; now I do and I love it! I have been living here for over ten years and it is a great community to be part of. There are many brilliant local shops and business, in the area, that I’ve been happy to frequent and have become a regular. Then there is Portobello Road, as the song suggests from the famous film Bedknobs and Broomsticks; “Anything and everything a truck can unload… You get anything you want on the Portobello Road…” enough said.

On the corner of Lancaster Gardens and Ladbroke Grove is my local florist, where I am a regular. Jane, Wendy, Jadie and the rest of the staff are always very welcoming, friendly, helpful and I enjoy chatting and catching up with them while I am getting my flowers.

They have a great choice of cut flowers, indoor flowering plants and outdoor garden plants.

Tom aka ‘Mushroom Man’ is very well known in the area and has a stall located on Portobello Road, where he sells a large variety mushrooms and truffles. In recent years he has also started selling organic fruit and vegetables. I am a fan of the seasonal produce he gets in like wild garlic leaves and wild asparagus. Here I have bought, and enjoyed, different types of vegetables like purple sweet potatoes, yellow carrots and rainbow purple carrots.

This fruit and vegetable stall is also on Portobello Road, reasonable prices. I have been a regular here for a number of years. It is a family run business with Bella and her mum Cheryl at the helm. They are always very friendly and happy to help they have a large variety of good quality produce at and load the shopping in the bag on the back of my wheelchair.
