We are planning to organise some more successful covid-secure markets this year, starting in May. You can look on our Market Dates page for more details of upcoming events. We have sadly had to cancel our market planned for March as we feel that things probably won't be safe enough for it to go ahead. If you're a designer-maker who would like to trade with us, please visit our page about how to apply to get details of how to get a stall with us.
Local Makers Market is a modern, curated craft market showcasing handmade products from local designer-makers. You can expect to find screen prints, ceramics, jewellery, homewares and textiles from a wide selection of talented artisans. We also have a vegan cafe at all of our markets featuring delicious handmade cakes and savoury snacks. We organise regular markets at Christchurch hall in Wanstead and Abney Hall in Stoke Newington. Have a look at our traders page for a sneak peek at our makers and their products.
VEGAN POP-UP CAFE
Our vegan pop-up cafe in Wanstead is pretty special as it features such a vast array of cakes and bakes, drawing a big crowd at every event. It's run by local baker Mehvish of Herons Nest Cakes. Mehvish has won awards for her cakes and regularly takes orders for birthdays, weddings and other special events. Her cake flavours include Lime and Coconut, Victoria Sponge, Salted Caramel, Rose and Pistachio, Lemon and Elderflower, Chocolate and Raspberry, Chocolate and Biscoff, Apricot and Almond, Peach and Pecan, Caramel and choc chip, Cherry and Vanilla AND Lemon and Poppyseed! And yes, I know it's hard to believe but everything really is vegan!!!
