African Market @ Old Spitafield Market


The Old Spitafield Market is one of my favourite markets in London. Its has been open since 1638. At the time, East London was part of the rural area. As the population grew, Charles the II re-established the market in 1682.





It was the last Bank Holiday weekend of the year, Summer is slowly coming to end, still, the sun is smiling down on us. This was the day of the Sensational African Market everything inspired by the pulsating African culture; Old Spitafield Market was show casing a selection of the most talented African designers,

Shoppers were spoilt for choice with original and ethical fashion, accessories, jewellery, not forgetting arts and crafts, home-ware, natural beauty products and the list goes on and on. All I can say is -do not miss the next event. I know I won't.
