Green Rooms Market | A Roving Botanical Marketplace
If you’re wondering why your home isn’t filled with lush foliage, leafy palms and potted houseplants…
…it’s probably because you haven’t botany.
And while London is filled with all manner of tiny independent plant boutiques tucked away on picturesque cobbled lanes waiting expectantly for you to stumble across, they’re no use in an emergency such as this. What you require is a collection of handpicked vendors, curated by the expert eye of a pair of botanist enthusiast sisters, and conveniently gathered in one place.
Behold: Green Rooms Market, a roving botanical marketplace that pops up across London with hundreds of different species of plant, succulents and cacti up for grabs (metaphorically speaking).
Planting themselves into strikingly beautiful settings each time – from the Grade II listed Victorian market at King’s Cross to the elegant halls of the Royal Horticultural Society – you’ll find stall after stall of both indoor and outdoor greenery, as well as handmade ceramics, 3D printed pots, hanging planters and macramé holders.
Exploding with an abundance of trailing plants, hanging ferns, potted succulents and a little kokedama, the ancient art of Japanese moss ball plant display, the stalls at Green Rooms Market are all run by independent sellers who are all certifiably green-fingered. So if there’s anything you’re unsure of (say, for example, you’ve recently come into possession of an ancient Japanese moss ball plant display), you can score advice right from the experts.
Beyond the stalls, there’s usually one or two workshops running, too – so you can learn the basics of flower arranging or put together a terrarium with your new purchases. And naturally there’s live music, a bar and a couple of street food stalls to keep you fed and watered. After which, there’s only one thing to do…
NOTE: The Green Rooms Market returns for Grown & Thrown, a ceramics and plant market, on 21st May 2023. You can find out more HERE.
