Introducing Netil Market.... (courtesy of Fetch & Follow)
Since we opened the shop at Netil Market we have been meaning to do a blog post about the different traders operating from this corner of London and to let you know why we think that this is the place to be on a Saturday or Sunday. Turns out we don't have to as our neighbours at Fetch & Follow have been waxing lyrical about the market and produced an excellent round up of all the things that there are to see, buy and, most importantly, eat at Netil Market. We jumped at the chance to share this here (okay, so it's akin to copying someone else's homework) and second their list of reasons why Netil Market is just so great.
"Over the next coming months we will be sharing with you everything we enjoy doing around the London Fields area which is where our little store is based, and we thought we would start with where it all began
For over the past 3 years our home has been based in Netil Market, which is a creative community of designer-makers and food. During the week the atmosphere is relaxed with the permanent resident’s stores and workshops being open and ready to welcome customers. While at the weekend the place comes alive with the space filling up with market stalls showcasing the best of local independent designers and vintage finds with the addition renowned street food traders. Making it the perfect spot to come and spend a Saturday afternoon.
