STALLS have already started to move out of Spitalfields Market to make way for a week-long arts and crafts fair.

Traders will be relegated to Lamb Street for the duration and shoppers wanting peruse craft stalls inside a cordoned off part of the market building will have to pay a fee.

Market bosses have set up an advanced Lamb Street market, which is running for three weeks, to get the venue ready for the Origin craft fair which starts on Thursday, September 23.

The Thursday Antiques market will be held in Lamb Street on September 23, 30 and October 7.

A general market will operate at the Lamb Street site on Friday, September 24, October 1 and Wednesday, October 6.

Origin: The London Craft Fair takes place in Spitalfields Market from September 23-29. Tickets cost from * from
