Columbia Road Flower Market
Every Sunday, Columbia Road welcomes its lovely flower market. Be ready to get your senses in action with beautiful colours and smells whilst marketers serenade your ears. If you’re going there with a dog, it is always best to go early in order to avoid the crowd. Holding a dog and a flower bunch in your arms at the same time can be challenging. No need to be a flower or plant lover to go to Columbia Road Flower Market, though you’ll probably still end up with some sort of greenery.
We know what you’re thinking: Pavilion again in our top 5 places to visit? What can we say…we love a good croissant and coffee combo on our way to the park with our best furry friend and no Pavilion venue has ever disappointed us! Indeed, we love Columbia Road Pavilion Bakery just as much as the Victoria Park one which has a great food and coffee offering. It always welcomes dogs, so you know where to get your hot drink and pastry fix when around this area.

We know for a fact the dog-walking outfit doesn’t give much space to fashion. But we also know that you’ve chosen Fetch & Follow for your dog that means you have good taste and you like high-quality products. Thus we believe you shouldn’t give up on dressing up when going out with your dog. Henri on Hackney Road offers a selection of clothing and accessories perfect for stylish dog owners who want to dress ‘comfortably chic’. In Henri you’ll find a unique selection of like-minded brands.
We find that the Henri store has very similar ethos to Fetch & Follow; it ‘tells a story of beautiful design, local production and creative integrity’. If you’re lucky enough, you might meet their lovely brand ambassadors Ren and Otis when going there!

Hackney Coffee Company
If you’re looking for a place to work, relax or meet for an afternoon drink with a friend, Hackney Coffee Company is the place. The atmosphere is cosy and calm and we love going there for our monthly meeting with the team. The staff and coffee are on point and dogs are always welcome. The room at the back of the café is filled with plants and offers beautiful natural light thanks to roof windows, which makes this place the perfect home-office away from home during the day. Don’t forget to pop by our store if you’re going to Hackney Coffee Company – we love a little dog-and-owner visit!

Columbia Road and surrounds
The Columbia Road neighbourhood is a dog-friendly area where we really enjoy spending time during weekdays and weekends. We love going to Haggerston Park and its little forest surrounded by the funniest animals from Hackney City Farm. Haggerston Park is enclosed with walls and gates, which makes it the ideal park for puppies and older dogs learning how to go off-lead. In addition to our top favourite places to visit we’ve mentioned, it’s worth double-checking with shop assistants – but most of Columbia Road’s stores will let you come in with your dog, which makes it the perfect place to shop your Christmas gifts after a stroll around Haggerston Park.
