Loverlee Saturday Mornings ...

What could be better than wandering abound Broadway Market and Bookshops, Hackney on a Saturday morning in Autumn ... ?

Broadway Market Bookstall - Carefully Selected New Titles

What a lovely morning. Warm weather. A rich aroma wafting from the coffee shops. Freshly made sun dried tomato breads, cheesy breads, potato breads, hog roasts, miniature specialist pies and cakes [yes I was feeling rather hungry] specialist balsamic vinegars and olive oils, flowers and an interesting choice of hand made gifts amid a colourful and friendly setting, a musical backdrop [young female musician singing and playing guitar] ... and ... wait for it ... three hypnotic poetry / art / book / shops ... The Broadway Bookshop, Artwords Bookshop and Donlon Books.

Well worth a visit.

Enjoy !
