Where Next For Lower Marsh Market?
Do not fear – despite the metal fences, diggers, hard hats and fluorescent jackets Lower Marsh is still open for business.
Contractors on the Lower Marsh Regeneration Project – a seven-figure facelift for the iconic Waterloo street – have now moved down to the Cubana end of the road.
The works mean that all of the market stalls have been shifted down the street, and can now be found between Westminster Bridge Road and Greensmiths.
The move is temporary with the regeneration expected to be complete by late summer.
Once the works are finished Lower Marsh will have 55 market pitches, including some with electricity available.
The job of deciding the placement of stalls now falls to the new market manager, Ben Norum (pictured).
Ben started in January and will combine his two-day role with his ongoing journalism commitments for Scout London, the Cocktail Lovers Magazine and The Londonist.
He explained: “Lower Marsh has always been one of my favourite streets, it has so much character. It’s great to be able to work with the market and help to add to that.
“I just hope people continue to pop down to the market and the fantastic shops in Lower Marsh – with the roadworks it is a challenging time for them, and I know they appreciate all their customers’ support.
"Over the coming months people will also see a change in the market, as food stalls will be joined by more local arts & crafts traders and more produce, so it’s an exciting time."
