Ethical market launches at Spitalfields
A new ethnical market has been launched at Spitalfields.
Eco-friendly arts, crafts and clothes, along with regional foods, will be sold on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the old market.
Hand-made and fairly traded goods from Thailand, Vietnam, Nepal, India, and South America will be among the fare on offer at the Keen Green and Ethical Trade Market.
To launch the stalls on Tuesday, magician ‘Eco-Peat’ entertained passersby with tricks.
His skills of illusion included transforming paper into money and crushed cola tins into pristine ones.
