At TFH Gazebos, we are passionate about supporting the British market trade and regularly supply to customers in this industry. In December 2016, we joined up with Hackney Council to relaunch Well Street Market.
Dating back to the 19th century, this historic shopping area was once a major trade hub for the city and is known for being the birthplace of Tesco, which in 1919 was only a mere market stall on the cobbled streets run by owner Jack Cohen. From its launch in 1862 to the late 1980s, Well Street was a thriving market stretching all the way from Morning Lane to Valentine Road.
Unfortunately, in the early 1990s, the market started to die off and eventually closed, but thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, Well Street Market is now up and running again, with hundreds of visitors every month.
This innovative and historic street market showcases traders offering up delicious street food, local British produce, fashion, live music and the first teenage and student makers’ market in London. The market currently includes 36 stalls from East London’s most innovative of makers and traders and is looking to expand throughout 2017.
TFH Gazebos has supplied all of the gazebos and equipment for the stalls and traders, with hopes that the market has a bright, long and successful future. With more and more traders frequenting Wells Street, there has since been demand for branded products such as Sky Banners, in order for traders to show their brand identity at the market.
With the weather improving and the days growing longer, it’s a great time of year to get outside and support your local market. If you’re a local resident in London or planning a trip there this summer, don’t forget to check out the market events calendar here and pop along.
Alternatively, if you are a trader and looking for a new and lively place to find new business, you can apply to trade at Well Street here. Don’t forget to check out our handy guide for market-stall traders with our top 10 expert tips too.
