Despite the name, you won't find farmers selling their wares at Chelsea Farmers' Market.
Instead, this quiet enclave off Kings Road is a scenic square with one-off shops and restaurants with al fresco dining.
In summer, the courtyard at the heart of the market becomes a little foodie oasis. The Market Place restaurant offers outside tables drawing lunchtime crowds who take cover under the shade of the outsized umbrellas.
After lunch, browse around the shops selling everything from expensive handbags to obscure books.

It really is not even a 'market' - just a collection of...more
A bit of a misnomer, Chelsea Farmers Market is an eclectic collection of small businesses - just off bustling Kings Road - in permanent but shed-like buildings. While you can find plenty of plants and gardening things at The Chelsea Gardener, as well as a large selection of fruit, veg, meat, breads and other wholesome products at Here (an all-organic supermarket), you'll also encounter a...more
I didn't notice this place for ages even though I passed the entrance twice a day on the way to and from work. It's something to do with the low, chalet-style buildings which house the shops, businesses and restaurants - they're just so un-flashy, un-Chelsea.
So in the end I was brought here because someone recommended the alterations place to me I think it's called Leo's. It's run by an old...more
