North End Road

The North End Road is a road running roughly northwest to southeast from [Hammersmith Road]?, past West Kensington Station, through Earl's Court to the [Parsons Green]? end of Fulham Broadway. It has a typical range of high-street shops, and a slightly run-down feel. There are generally market stalls lining the street, selling everything from blankets to kitchen goods to underwear and fresh meat.

There are two great butchers on the street, [Dickenson's]? being the best and cheapest.

The market has a reputation as the cheapest food market in London, or did about 4 years ago when I was a student living nearby - bob

The market, at least on Saturdays, has a cheese stall selling out-of-date French and British cheeses. Of course, cheese doesn't really go off, at least not that quickly. The camemberts and bries are ready-to-eat with gooey, soft centres. The crottins are three-to-the-pound! (Note: the cheap cheese stall is the one at the north end of the market, near the junction with Lillie Road. There is another cheese stall at the other end, but it's more expensive but has more interestign cheeses)
