Saturday Morning Market

Just a few blocks from us, Pimlico Road is a six-year-old "organic" market, though Orange Square was once host to roaming sheep and donkeys as well as a local vegetable market way back in the eighteenth century. In 1764, a young Mozart penned his first symphony nearby at the tender age of eight. A statue of him, in all his frock-coated glory, stands proudly in the midst of the square.

The Saturday morning market, plus 2 quid for the Sunday Times, equals the perfect lazy Sunday morning breakfast for us. A red ripe Beefsteak tomato, two fresh farm eggs sunny side up (Rick likes his scrambled), a thick slice of cheddar, cherry smoked ham, toasted whole wheat bread with warmed honey comb, seasonal English strawberries, and a cup of skinny cafe' latte.....
It's just heaven!!!

Can you smell the English garden roses?

I want to got there!
It looks so much more charming than our corner market here in Alabama.
Enjoy your last weekend in London !
