The great L8 Street Market is well into its eighth year now but I haven’t been around Granby or anywhere else much recently, so it was good to step out on a fine September morning and arrive at Granby again.
A real mixture of stalls here. All kinds of food, art, crafts, bike repairs, general interestingness and some they sum up as ‘car booty-ness.’
But best of all loads of people and the place itself. I was involved here for many years of course and it’s great to be back among friends again. Conversations flowing easily in the morning sun.
I go for a walk round.
Then someone taps me on the elbow and a very modern exchange takes place:
“Hello, are you a sense of place? I’m Urban Goals.”
Or @urbangoals or @mrkirks2 as you may know him better. Good to shake hands like humans rather than mere Twitter accounts Michael.
Granby Street Market is now running on the first Saturday of every month of the year, apart from January when it has a rest.
