About Time: You Visited BlackEatsLDN’s Weekend Market, Black-Owned HackneyBy Iona Goulder
BlackEatsLDN is back for a second year with its vibey weekend market Black-Owned Hackney at Bohemia Place Market. Setting up shop across various weekends in E8 until October(see here for the full schedule), the market champions Black-owned businesses in the heart of Hackney.
In its first year, Black-Owned Hackney brought together 40 of the best Black-owned businesses for an experience in street food, cocktails, skincare, clothing, and so much more. Back again for 2022, expect an amazing line-up of Black-owned businesses covering everything from hot food, alcoholic slushes, cakes, clothing, skincare, homeware and *so* much more.
The original mission of Black Eats LDN was and is to break down the barriers for Black-owned businesses who have historically had a visible lack of spotlight in mainstream media, namely Black-owned restaurants. In May 2021 Jackson transformed this into an impressive and dynamic array of traders spanning the fields of food, drink, craft, art, music and more, to champion all of the Black-owned businesses we have on our doorstep.
Traders this year include: Affrito, Bon Mange, Eat Some Ting, Foodies& Grubbies, Ice Cream & Ting,Jam Delish, Livity Plant-Based Cuisine, Rack City Ribs, Sunkissed Plates, Treats Club, among others.
