Well Street Market – the historic London street market that was home to the first ever Tesco market stall – is getting set for its relaunch this Saturday (3 December) following a crowdfunding campaign in association with Well Street Traders and Residents Association.
The market, which will run on the first Saturday of every month and has won backing from the Mayor of London, will now sell fresh produce, fashion and street food and will be home to stalls run at no cost by local designers and artists as well as London’s first market for teenagers, where young entrepreneurial Hackney residents can book free stalls.
There will be a live music stage where local bands, singers and DJs can book performance slots alongside established acts.
An opening ceremony with special guests will take place at midday and there will be a switching on of the Christmas lights.
Other events, including walks, talks and workshops, will also be taking place.
