Regular events from April to December
Local Makers is fairly new to the London market scene and are a welcome addition with their enthusiasm and energy. The markets started in Wanstead, but have now expanded to include Dalston and Hackney Wick.
The venues vary but the quality of the traders is always very high with some of great local makers offering unique clothes, framed original prints and cards, handmade jewellery and accessories, craft beer, naturally made toiletries and of course more succulents than you can point a cactus at! The markets take place from the spring until Christmas and are always well publicised on their website and through social media.
It’s great to visit a market run with such generosity with no entry fee and a great little vegan pop-up café offering all kinds of homemade treats. Check out their website for details of the forthcoming events - they are definitely worth making a special effort to visit.
