This past weekend we planned on dinner and a movie to celebrate Valentine’s Day. However, the weather was beautiful for this time of year. It was cloudy, but pleasant. Sitting inside seemed like a wasted opportunity. We headed to Spitalfields Market. Sunday is the liveliest day to go and the flower markets are present. We went on a Saturday, which means I’ll probably head back there on a Sunday. The market is a short walk from Liverpool Street Station. Since 1638 a market has been located on this site. Today it’s a trendy area where you can find clothes, food, books, and more.
After wandering through the market we headed over to Brick Lane. If you are in the mood for curry this is the place to go. We opted for Chinese from the food market. Many Bengalis live in the neighborhood. It’s a lively area to wander through and is famous for its graffiti. You never know what you’ll find and each time I’ve been there something else catches my eye.
