"A Portuguese Love Affair was born from our wish to share the best things made in Portugal. To share childhood memories, unforgettable flavours and the essence of being Portuguese."
Just over a year old now, the "love affair" is flourishing in Columbia Road, especially on Sundays when the street is filled with people brought in by the stunning and abundant flower markets. You'll find an eclectic mix of household goods (wooden toys, notebooks, soap, teapots, small dishes…) and groceries (sardines, condiments, salt, toothpaste…) all stacked neatly, and popping with colour. All just too inviting to leave empty handed, and judging from the line to pay, everyone seemed to feel the same way. It's a love affair alright, and it seems to be contagious.
