We are now selling the 2020 MyLondon calendar, employing two rough sleepers and several recently homeless people, in two markets until Christmas!
The first market to open was Spitalfields E1 Market. We are selling in the market from Thursday to Sunday during market hours - 10am to 5pm. We have been fortunate to be given a space in the popular market for eight years now.
This year we have started selling earlier than previous years. With the uncertainty over Brexit we don't know what will happen later in the year. We have a huge number of people who have bought before, including many tourists, especially from Germany where we have a lot of media coverage. Several come to the market saying they came especially for the calendar! However we know that many come for the market, which is one of the best in London for handmade goods and clothing.
The second market to open was Piccadilly Market, which opened today. Situated under the historic St James's Church, the market runs six days a week from Monday to Saturday. David Fussell, "the homeless film maker" will be selling in St James's Wednesdays to Fridays.
