I only visited Portobello Road Market once while I was in London. Too many tourists and it was too hard to get to West London. There were so many different little stalls along Portobello Road and you really can get just about anything you need. I'm not big on sifting through stalls and stuff, so mostly I just wanted to 'check the box' off that I was able to see this historic site. Though I did walk the Notting Hill area when I went to Carnival two years in a row! Now THAT was a completely different experience than the weekly market!
