Every August since 1996 the Portobello Film Festival has been held in locations around Portobello Road. The Portobello Road Market draws a lot of tourists. The main market day for antiques is Saturday. However, there are also fruit and vegetable stalls in the market, which trade throughout the week and are located further north than the antiques, near the Westway Flyover.
The market began as a fresh-food market in the 19th century; antiques dealers arrived in the 1960s. The market section of Portobello road runs in a direction generally between the north-northwest and the south-south-east.
