Green Tuesdays and Wednesdays are arriving in the City from 6 March as the Keen Green and Ethical Trade Market takes up a weekly residency in Old Spitalfields.
A major aim of the event is to provide an outlet for local businesses so organisers, the Market Square Group, are appealing for London-based businesses to apply for space.
Producers and merchants of ethically produced arts, crafts, clothing, jewellery and home furnishings are particularly welcome as the focus will be on businesses that demonstrate sustainable and ethical business practices. Food will also be an important ingredient with fair-trade, organic, free range, traceable and homemade, small production local and regional offerings on the menu.
The Market Square Group’s Paul Kennedy said: “We’re very excited to be bringing this established event for a weekly slot at Old Spitalfields. We have developed and operate a number of themed markets across the UK but one of our most enduring themes has been the Keen Green and Ethical Trade Market which is now established as an annual event in cities including Newcastle and York.
“We continue to see a demand for original products of good quality. A great many people care about where their food comes from and the ingredients that are used. Similarly, original, handmade and or ethically traded arts, crafts, clothing and jewellery are holding their own in these challenging economic times precisely because people are being more careful about how they spend their money.”
The market will also feature energy saving inventions and eco-friendly initiatives to create a synergy that is aiming to deliver more than just retail therapy. The market will run every Tuesday and Wednesday throughout March with more dates planned for later in the year.
Anyone interested in taking a stall should call Paul Kennedy on 07944 599165 or email
