If there’s one thing for sure, this pocket-sized East London market will put a sting in your step.
It forms part of Eat Work Art, an organisation set up with the hope of nurturing creatives, initially by providing them with flexible, affordable workspaces, and then later with initiatives like Netil Radio; rooftop bar and pop-up space Netil 360; and this very market.
Therefore, it’s not just filled with any old vendors. Instead you’ll find some of the best independent designers and makers in the business.
A few vendors have permanent pitches – people like The Worshipful Little Shop Of Spectacles, with their hand dip dyed glasses specifically matched to each customers eye, hair, and skin colour; and Brother, with their gender-fluid, minimalistic threads.
There’s also a handful of great street food spots. Previously spots like Bao, Sonora Taqueria and Pockets have all earned cult status here, and nowadays you can swing by for World Famous Gordos pizza, Willy’s Pies, Wingnut Wines, and more.
Opening days and times vary for each business, so it’s probably best to check on their individual channels, however some are definitely open all week.
And then there’s the pop-ups. Come Saturday Netil Market is jam-packed with temporary stalls selling everything from house plants to vintage records. We thought the same when we first heard about it…
…music to our ears.
NOTE: Many of Netil Market’s permanent pitches are open all week long. The pop-up market happens every Saturday 11am-6pm, otherwise it’s probably best to check on each business’s individual channels. You can also find some additional information via Netil Market’s website here.
