Who else is missing their daily dose of the market? As one of the only markets in London open to enjoy 7 days a week, we understand that to many of our loyal traders, customers and weekend browsers there is a Spitalfields-shaped gap that needs to be filled. A gap made up of unique gifts, custom made clothing, delicately crafted jewellery and statement pieces of wall art or sculptures.
There is no better feeling than a lazy wander around the market to see what’s on offer from your favourite stall, or simply for a catch up with the trader.
It is with great excitement we announce the Spitalfields Virtual Market!
This is an extremely difficult time for independent Traders and, as a market with community at its core, we are committed to helping them weather this storm. To support their trade as much as possible, we have come up with the Virtual Market, a weekly appointment where we’ll be sharing some of their latest one-of-a-kind pieces and you’ll have the opportunity to know them better.
The Virtual market will be held every Thursday at 3pm on our Instagram Stories and each week will feature a selection of different traders for you to peruse. For those who cannot make it, don’t worry! We’ll save the stories in the dedicated Virtual Market Highlight on our Instagram homepage to check out at your leisure. Just be aware, what you love may well be gone if you don’t hurry.
How can you help?
Tune in to our weekly markets and take advantage of the special offers from different traders, purchase vouchers to use once the market has reopened, or simply drop them a follow, a like and a message to check how they are doing. Sometimes the smallest gestures mean the most, so please do share the love!
And the Arts Market?
The Arts Market is going virtual too! On the first Friday of every month, we will introduce a different artist and showcase their work, whether it’s a new piece, a special offer or some exclusive behind the scene footage of the magic at work. It’s definitely going to be one to watch. Plus, now that we’re all spending a lot more time at home, what better reason to create a feature wall with a gorgeous new piece of art?
The Virtual Market starts this Thursday 2nd April. See you there!
