Good news! The coolest little shopping street in London has its very own outdoor market
The new market runs the length of Lower Stable Street, and has a stellar line-up of stallholders, all handpicked by independent magazine-turned store, Kiosk N1C, and showcasing the work of some of the city’s most exciting creatives. Lower Stable Street Market runs for just four Saturdays, from 19 September to 10 October, from 11am-4pm, so get it in the diary!
There are books, tees, and zines from Quality of Life and XFEL featuring ‘wacky graphics, good times, and bad heavy metal’, while Honest Jon’s record stall is on-hand with an eclectic mix of blues, reggae, dance and soul on vinyl and CD.
You’ll find terrariums, succulents and plants from the Botanical Boys, and floral design studio Fluoresse has taken a stall with their ‘big bossy blooms’. Choose from their range of fresh or dried bouquets, or have a go at creating your own.
Art lovers should be sure to check out Hato Press. The lifestyle store and independent printers insist that all of their items are both beautiful and fun, so you’ll find playful clothing, limited edition prints, quirky home accessories and conversation-starter books.
Food enthusiasts are well catered for too. You’ll find the most delicious gourmet doughnuts at Longboys, cult sandwiches at Dom’s Subs, and you can get your caffeine fix at Lower Stable Street’s resident coffee house Redemption Roasters. If you’d like to take some deliciousness home, there are deli delights at Kold Sauce with their range of hot pepper sauces, secret recipe pickles at Putz’s, and locally produced fruit at Trapfruits.
Plus, in October, creative studio-slash-environmentalist team Adapt launch their activist fashion project, only at Lower Stable Market. Named one of the British Council’s 10 emerging designers of 2019, the climate crisis-tackling project is not to be missed.
