What do you like most about trading at Catford Food Market?

The diverse clientele. I live here so I love to engage with old, new friends, neighbours, locals and visitors. We’re fairly new to the market but everyone we’ve met have been incredibly supportive.

How important do you think markets are? Has the pandemic changed this?

Markets bring the community together, the pandemic affected markets a little bit because they needed to reduce the number of stalls, but open markets are safer to shop at than going to a supermarket.

What are your plans for the future?

Open a cafe/restaurant and do more festivals.

What is your idea of success?

Success is when your customer comes back to see you again and again.
