Roman Road Market has been running for over 150 years and is undoubtedly infamous within East London. It’s a traditional East End street market selling a host of affordable goods – and now it’s had a bit of a regeneration.
Roman Road Yard Market is newly founded and led by a community development trust, champion local traders, community groups and musicians. The new Roman Road Yard Market is an off-shoot from the existing market and located in a car park at the epicentre of Roman Road.
With the market up and running, you will find a refreshing mixture of East End locals from Bow and creatives from neighbouring places like Hackney Wick or Victoria Park.
With this in mind we were keen to catch up with the brains behind it all, Tabitha Stanley.
