The African Market @ Old Spitalfields
The African Market at Spitalfields features a selection of the most talented designers from and inspired by Africa. Stalls can range from contemporary to vintage fashion to timeless accessories.
The African market showcases once a month on a Saturday with original & ethical fashion, accessories, jewellery, shoes as well as arts & crafts, natural beauty products, books, music, arts and more inspired by the motherland.
More than an exhibition and trade space, The African Market has become a place of curiosity attracting an eclectic mix of people including families, young people, students and adults of all ages.
You can also sometimes find local and international charities there promoting their awareness campaigns and events. On my last visit saw a live childrens African drumming lesson take place. Awesome!
It’s also a great networking platform both for traders and visitors, connecting amateurs, professionals and people who are passionately inspired by Africa.
