Lady Lane Market launches Friday
Street markets have traditionally been male-dominated spaces. Tower Hamlets Council are funding a new market for women-only traders. It’s been setup to encourage more women to trade within traditional East End markets. To apply the stallholders must live in Tower Hamlets or the City. It will be open on Fridays between 10am and 3pm in Wentworth Street.
Tower Hamlets say; “Lady Lane Market will sell a wide range of homemade products including crafts, skincare products, jewellery and a range of gifts all made and curated by local women. Cash and cards will be accepted at all stalls and the market is committed to being as sustainable as possible.”
