Launch of the Makers Market in Wandsworth

A Sustainable Makers Market is set to launch in the town of Wandsworth each October through Christmas.

The Makers Market hosted by LED designa London-based marketplaces operator, will showcase fair trade and sustainable curations from a mix of 30 British designers in the Ram Quarter.

The markets will run from 11am to 4.30pm on the first Saturday of each month, starting October 1, with two additional markets in place for the Christmas period.

Design LED founder Lee Wilson said: “We only work with companies that are sustainable, made in Britain and are fair trade products.

“We have a good following of existing traders and we try to mix it up as much as possible.

“Locals go there not only because it’s fair trade, but also because they are interested in British brands with lovely designs and things you can’t find in the shops.

“The market brings new and distinctive handicrafts to people’s doorsteps.”

Residents will have the chance to purchase lots of handmade and sustainable clothing, accessories and artwork before the Christmas period.

A local Brixton business, Market Row Botanical Rum, will return to Design LED’s Makers Market to sell its locally produced bottled rum.

A new company coming to the Makers Market is Artemisa Natural, a handmade natural skincare product made from rice.

The market will be held in Bubbling Well Square and the main boulevard in the Ram district on October 1, November 5 and December 3, with two additional markets open on November 26 and December 17 for Christmas.

Wilson said, “Ram Quarter is the perfect place for us with its beautiful riverside location and heritage.”

Design LED also held other markets in popular fashion and lifestyle hotspots such as Southwark’s Dulwich Village and Mayfair’s South Molton Street.
