Done Deal For Chatsworth Market

Chatsworth Road market is back.

Finally the Market returns to Chatsworth Road on Sunday 7  November 2010, after a 10 year absence.

Chatsworth Road Traders and Residents Association (CRTRA), working with Hackney Council, are running three pilot markets in November and December before considering a larger, regular market from 2011. The market has a long history and was in its heyday in the 1930s, with up to 200 stalls lining the street.

Ian Rathbone, interim chair of CRTRA, said:  “Markets offer a great opportunity for local residents to start up a business, allowing them to test their ideas and meet their customers.”

He continued, “Chatsworth Road has seen many changes over the last few years and the benefits to the local community of a revived market will be tremendous – a chance to meet people and build community spirit, a place to buy and sell goods – from gifts and clothing to food – all while supporting a local high street and contributing to the continued regeneration of E5.”

Remy Zentar, owner of L’épicerie, and CRTRA Treasurer, added: “Reviving the market will bring new people and more business to the street. It’s about offering the customer more options and the experience of shopping locally.”
