Wembley Park Market, an indoor market in London, has launched seven independent makers and merchants in a space of 4,000sq. ft.
The market aims to bring together a community of independent and local merchants and makers, from fashion and food to homeware and wellness.
Independent retailers including zero-waste food and household store Patoka, eco-friendly home fragrance brand Lagom, as well as a specialist barber, an artisanal maker gallery and an ethical food, crafts, homeware and arts collective can be found at Wembley.
Additionally, Duck Pond Market will bring together local, sustainable and ethical food, crafts, homeware and arts, as well as vintage and upcycled goods.
Chloë McGill, Founder of Patoka, said, “Wembley Park Market is exactly what London needs – a place that gives entrepreneurs, start-ups and designers the opportunity to showcase and sell their quality products in a really fun environment. It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to make it more convenient for Londoners to make sustainable choices and we are in fantastic company with other like-minded brands.”
The three billion pound urban development project is being delivered by Quintain. Being near the National Stadium, the development is in a new neighbourhood in North London which is estimated to attract over 20 million visitors a year and benefit from an annual retail spending of 328 million pounds with almost 70 new shops, restaurants and services.
“Community and enterprise go hand-in-hand in Wembley Park, so it’s important that we continue to nourish the independent brands that put their confidence in the scheme and the huge opportunity that it brings with it,” Quintain retail director Matt Slade said.
