Market stallholders have joined café owners and shopkeepers in London’s East End for the first time to sign up for the local authority’s healthy foods awards.
Nine stallholders at Poplar’s Chrisp Street Market received awards along with three shopkeepers at the nearby Trussler community hall after joining Tower Hamlets council’s Food for Health scheme.
They included Aruk Choudray who set up his own fruit and veg stall after 25 years as a chef sweating it out in restaurant kitchens.
“Aruk has always wanted to run his own business,” said a Town Hall spokesman. “He uses his skills as a chef to create fruit and veg recipes and cooked pakora in the market which attracted customers to his stall.
