At this district’s heart lies the famous Portobello Road Market where antique muskets are traded alongside aubergines. Eccentric stallholders haggle over everything from doorknobs to hand-iced cupcake portraits. Artistic locals have their pick of some of London’s best restaurants, the preppy boutiques on Ledbury Road and charming public houses of leafy Westbourne Grove.
Although famous for vintage and antiques this district is a destination in itself, with offbeat diversions such as the Electric Cinema and the annual Caribbean flavoured carnage of Carnival. Notting Hill is a village where English eccentricity is allowed to run riot.View all Notting Hill spaces
It's busy and vibrant area especially on Market day, we love the contrast during the week - its much quieter and the gentler pace allows us to meet new clients.

We're so central here but it feels like it's own little world. The community's worked really hard to keep that feel.

We are five friends that all live in the area and formed our brand, London Village Kids, when we found out the shop was empty we took the opportunity to open Jusu Brothers.
