Food stall workers at night market Last Days of Shoreditch have described a decision to demolish the pop-up as a “big mistake” as they vacate the area to make way for a new Park Plaza hotel.
The portentously named night market has operated on the edge of Old Street under different guises for eight years, bringing street food, bars and live music in its prime east London location.
The venue marked its final run on Sunday ahead of plans to demolish the site.
Reda Cellam, who cooks pizza on the market’s Crust Bros’ stall, said he felt the decision to tear down the market was a “big mistake”, adding: “It’s been open for eight years, it’s something amazing. The owner just told me they [planned] to open just for six months and they did it for eight years.”
