e have something of a soft spot for Canopy Market, the weekly independent market an olive’s hurl from Granary Square.
And over the bank holiday weekend it’s celebrating the best of London’s design scene with a weekend dedicated to up-and-coming artists and makers from all over the city.
The market is teaming up with Made in Arts London (MiAL), a non-profit initiative supporting new creative talent in arts and design, to host ten cutting-edge artists and designers alongside street food stalls and a craft beer bar.
From jewellery to ceramics, stationary to prints, design-loving punters can take their pick of creations by a roster of student and alumni artists from the six colleges included in University of the Arts London.
And there’s plenty of sustenance – as you’d expect. You can browse the stalls underneath the restored Victorian roof while sipping on a pint of Big Hug Brewing blonde ale, or grab a dish of Korean BBQ bulgogi from BAP Foods. Live music is on hand – as always – too: Boom la Tete will be playing on Friday and Saturday night, providing an art-matching soundtrack of jazz and blues.
