In 2013 new permanent "shacks" have been created which offer Hackney's business entrepreneurs and culinary and artistic creatives an affordable, low-risk way to set-up shop. As Sarah Bates, Market Manager explains, "Rent is so high in Hackney and particularly in Broadway Market. This is the next best stop for people wanting to set-up shop."
Creative Network Partners who are behind both the market and Netil House have always been committed to building creative communities in declining spaces. The permanent shacks will help to bring footfall to the market as well as make full use of all the market area 7 days a week. To complete the offering they are welcoming enquiries from interested non-food traders to fill the last remaining spaces. You might be an art collective or vintage/fashion label? Spaces are a steal starting from £500 pm. Another incentive is that all permanent residents get a free membership to the super-cool private members roof terrace bar at Netil House.
Netil Market already does have it's fair share of success stories. Lucky Chip is one of them. People come to the market just to sample their renowned burgers (right) and they have since taken up another residency in The Selbright Arms. For those non-meat eaters a mega-tasty tuna burger from Fin and Flounder is also a popular choice.
The Cycle Pitstop operates an excellent bike repair service and at very affordable prices (I can recommend these first hand as they changed my brakes last week for just £15!).
Victoria Yum are setting up their Yum Shack and will be spoiling Hackney with their delicious cupcakes.
Popular market stall regulars include Arrow Jewellery and PenelopeBlue Vintage. Throughout Jan and Feb stall holders can benefit from an brilliant offer of 4 days for just £60 (usually £80). For high-end shoppers Michaux Club sells a fab range of designer cycling bags.
Netil Market reopens it's doors after the festive break, this Saturday the 19th of January. Stalls holders and traders can now list themselves for FREE in our market directory, just register.
