A host of local businesses have been given a platform at the soon-to-open Deptford Market Yard.
Some of the best start-ups and independents from Deptford’s buzzing creative and entrepreneurial community will take residence within the renovated historical railway arches next to Deptford station, building on the already thriving local market and retail scene.
Many of the new businesses are local start-ups who will have their first permanent, physical space in the outlet. Previously they’ve run street food trucks, pop up shops and market stalls in the local area.
Street food and supper club fans will be well catered for with Frankie Goes to Bollywood, the latest take on Indian inspired fast food, move to the area. The Cheese Truck will also get its first bricks and mortar home and Jamaican street food specialists Mama’s Jerk and supper club turned all day eatery Dirty Apron will also be on the site.
In addition to this, there’s creative studios such as Childs Draw – the first permanent shop for local artist Jessica Childs whose illustrations are inspired by the local area – and industrial homewear store and gallery, Depot, run by textile artist Naomi Ryder.
Lifestyle boutique Win & Ruby will take a space in the arches as well as florist-come-interiors store The Room, hand-printed clothing store Plain Bear, Gitas Portal and Be London, which will each offer their own unique, handmade, fashion items made with African prints.
For a caffeine or cocktail fix, try Lomond Coffee who will roast and serve their own blend of the black stuff or Little Nan’s, the first fully permanent residency for the award winning pop-up who will serve their delicious range of cocktails in teapots.
Jessica Childs of Childs Draw said, “”It’s great to be part of the New Deptford Market Yard alongside other independent businesses. As a local person I’m psyched to see
a fresh new space for Deptford residents and visitors.”
