To help keep our traders, shoppers and community safe we took the difficult decision to close all street markets in Islington until further notice on 3 April. A small number of market stall traders will be able to reopen for business from 9 May, to test whether new guidelines on social distancing can keep shoppers and workers safe. We hope to have a phased reopening of our markets as soon as it is safe to do so.
