Great news from Limehouse* – a community market will be opening under the DLR arches at Limehouse Basin on the Bank Holiday of 28th & 29th May. There will also be a special food only pop-up market for the London Marathon on Sunday 24 April.

The new event will be Run by Sugar for My Soul’s director Sara Farrell and will allow people to sample the best in independent hot foods, fresh produce and artist and designer crafts.  Local businesses including Limehouse Community Forum, Moo Canoes and Limehouse Elite Gym are supporting the market.

It seems Sara has lots of experience at Camden Lock and Brick Lane markets and believes that markets can be testbeds for local entrepreneurs and should be at the heart of the community.

Sara believes that it is vital that this type of venture welcomes all members of the local community and showcases the fantastic ideas, products and activities that are going on in Limehouse, Wapping and the wider Tower Hamlets area.

Supporting local people

With a carefully curated offer with a price point to suit all budgets, the market will support and offer local people a trading platform to sell their home-grown produce and handmade designs.

Additionally it will be a place for conversation developing ideas and building community to enhance the local area over time.

Cultural events

Cultural events celebrating creativity, local history, community activity, social enterprise, charities and future generations will be part of each market, alongside the best in independent food, trade and culture.
