If you haven’t been to Greenwich Market yet, now it’s the right time! You can also enjoy the rest of the attractions in Greenwich. Grab some delicious food from the Market, go for a nice walk by the lovely river Thames, ah and Don’t forget to stop by the DC stall too 🙂
On Saturday 25th June, the Dementia Café were given the amazing opportunity to present their new products (Jars and tea towels) in the historic and world famous Greenwich Market. The trade started at 08:30am and continued until 05:30pm.
Greenwich Market is well known for its unique location by Cutty Sark and river Thames, which makes it one of the most interesting attractions in Greenwich for tourists and local people as well.
The market has existed since the 14th century, but originally was assigned by Lord Romney to the commissioners of the Greenwich hospital on the 19th of December 1,700 for more than 1,000 years. In the 80’s the first arts and crafts markets were opened. Today you can find a lot of different kinds of food, from Thai food, to Mexican and Japanese, along to arts and crafts, clothes and many more stalls. There are also a lot of independent and boutique stores surrounding the market as well as bars, restaurants and pubs.
Photos of our products from the trade day are on our Instagram page, along with the tea towels and animal Jars these can be of use for many different things such as; seasoning, cookies and can even be of a use for little kids and their Lego bricks. We also met the vegan cake stand Ruby’s, we had the great chance to taste their cakes and we can definitely say they were DELICIOUS!
It was another very successful day for the charity, the atmosphere was fantastic, the location and people were lovely and we look forward to trade in the Greenwich market again.
