Independent creatives are making the most of free stalls under Rother Street Market’s Art Friday initiative in Stratford

AN initiative offering free market stalls in Stratford to artists and makers is proving to be a huge success.

Market operator LSD Promotions has enlivened the Rother Street Market by creating Art Friday at the start of each month. Creatives can apply for a free stall to sell their products on the first Friday of each month – with the next events taking place on 1st March and 5th April.
