Save the Market Garden on Essex Road, Islington

The site of The Market Garden at 92 Essex Road is going to be developed. The family who own and run the business have been given notice to quit by June 2018. For more than 20 years, this independent fruit and veg stall has helped us all to buy good value fruit and vegetables without too much packaging, and gives us somewhere close to home to shop. This is particularly important for our older and less mobile neighbours. Along with the other independent food shops on Essex Road (James Elliott butchers, Steve Hatt fishmongers and Raab’s the bakers) the Market Garden family are an important part of our community.We haven’t yet seen the plans, but we’re campaigning to let the Market Garden stay at least until development actually starts (which could be years after planning permission is applied for), and possibly to be granted an affordable lease for the ground floor of the new building when it finally goes up. Please sign our petition if you’d like to help keep the Market Garden open on Essex Road.
