Shepherd’s Bush Market, London

April 2016

After visiting Kyoto Garden, we proceeded to Shepherd’s Bush Market by bus from Holland Park, which takes about 10 minutes. If you’re coming by tube, ensure you get off at Shepherd’s Bush Market and not at Shepherd’s Bush station. Like Edgware Road, Shepherd Bush caters to much of the needs of the Muslims community. Numerous halal outlet are found here along the road to the market and at the market, you can obtain halal meat. On the way there, we stopped by a halal confectionery shop for breakfast to have a taste of genuine English-made cakes and cookies.

Opened since 1914, Shepherd’s Bush Market is a historical landmark in West London. The market has long became a one stop shop for the local community gaining a reputation as one of the most diverse locations this side of London. It houses over 90 traders and is opened Monday – Saturday, 9am – 6pm. It is located between Shepherd’s Bush Market & Goldhawk Road Underground stations.

The trade at Shepherd’s Bush Market is similar to Church Street market we visited earlier today, although the traders here has permanent stalls. They sell wide varieties of goods, including fresh produce, meat, cooked food, music CDs, household goods, furnishings, clothing, fabrics, etc. You’ll find souvenirs like fridge magnets much cheaper here than in shops elsewhere.

Like Church Street Market, the Shepherd Bush Market as the name suggest, is a market. Not much different to any other market in other countries. In my opinion, if you are short of time, you would not miss much if these two places are not in your itinerary especially, if you had or planning to visit Portobello Street Market.
