East Street Market was identified as a potential project in ‘What Walworth Wants’ - a catalogue of ideas that has been created with and for the community. The proposals put forward in the catalogue build on, support and encourage activity. LB Southwark is working with market traders and other positive activities already taking a foothold on the ground. Transformations to East Street Market form a key part of the project.
Working closely with Maddison Graphic, enhancements include; a new market brand identity, new market stalls and old refurbished traditional wooden barrows – all shaped by the idea of an ‘old market, new ideas’. Further work to building frontages and entrances to the market, at Walworth Road and Dawes Street, will support East Market traders and local businesses.
The project is supported by the Mayor’s High Street Fund and Southwark Council.
