Regeneration of historic Enfield Market nearly complete

It’s almost here! Over the spring and all through the summer we have been working hard on regenerating our historic market and on Thursday, October 1 we are looking forward to welcoming local businesses, traders, members of the markets industry and our guest speaker, Deputy Mayor of London Roger Evans to our market.

On the day local high jump hopeful, Chris Kandu will be cutting the ribbon to mark the launch of a new phase in the life of our market. Chris is assisted by the Trust in Enfield with travelling expenses to get him to competitions, as part of the grants they administer each year from fees collected on the market.

The following day the sun carries on with the focus once again on food and the natural environment as we also celebrate British Food Fortnight. Our 80 seater food court will be in full swing, And the sights and smells of the hot food traders will be tempting for all the children coming to visit us from George Spicer school who are coming to visit Urban Food nominees Forty Hall Farm. There will be lots of fun, educational activities for the children including apple pressing, games and college making with the local community arts group Art Start. If you would like to come down with your children please do so, or for larger groups please contact the Trust Administrator by email.
