Were you there? Last weekend Leytonstone’s Church Lane carpark hosted a brand-new market at the start of a four-week trial run. Yup, that means there are still three weeks to go.
And you can expect everything from arts and crafts to local produce, up-cycled furniture, clothing and street food, plus a bar selling local craft beers. Entertainment is provided by a steel pan band, children’s disco, a traditional organ grinder and local musicians.
Traders include Taco Dave, serving up Mexican fried chicken realness, Muga pizza doing their artisan pizza thing, CJ3 Beans Coffee keeping caffeine levels high, workers’ cooperative OrganicLea selling locally-grown fruit and veg, and Lemon Street Cakes providing the sugar rush.
Local cyclists should put May 5th in your diary, when there’ll cycle safely and maintenance checks for tyres, brakes, saddles and lights from pro bike mechanics on a first-come, first served basis.
The final Saturday will have an arts and crafts focus – perfect if you’re planning a house reno this spring.
Whether the hot weather is back or not this the weekend, get down there and support to make this four-week pop-up a permanent thing.
