Businesses snap up stalls for North Harrow Street Market

Around 50 fledgling businesses, artisans and stallholders will be appearing at North Harrow’s first ever street market from 9th to 11th March.

Organised by Harrow Council and North Harrow traders, the three-day event is the latest in a programme of activity to revitalise the area and attract more shoppers to spend in local businesses. It is also a unique opportunity for local entrepreneurs to sell their products and market their businesses.

A huge range of products will be on sale including food, handmade jewellery, soap and candles, fashion, plants, baby products, art and more. Local community groups and schools will also lay on entertainment throughout the weekend.

Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said: “It is sure to be a fantastic weekend, creating a real buzz in North Harrow and raising the profile of the area. Attracting more shoppers will be good for existing traders and a great opportunity for dozens of Harrow entrepreneurs to sell their products. There has been huge demand and we already have a waiting list of stallholders, which is good news for North Harrow.”

The market is the latest instalment in a package of measures to support traders in the area and encourage more residents to shop locally. It is funded by the Council’s successful bid to the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.

“It is sure to be a fantastic weekend…” – Cllr Keith Ferry

The market will be open for business from 9.30am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
