Mary Portas 'Queen of the High Street'
Last Saturday, braving an inclement weather forecast, our tarts & giant meringues appeared in the famous Roman Road Market for the first time. The Mary Portas Team was there filming a new show that Channel 4 should broadcast next Spring. The guys from Tower Hamlets Council asked us to participate in relaunching the historical market in the heart of the East End; they needed a stall with a pretty display and some visually stunning stuff. We obliged.
The locals' response was positive; everyone leaving nearby was happy to finally see different food. Unfortunately, we sold out so quickly that when Mary came over to us for filming, the table was almost empty!
This is a reminder that diversity,colours & variety of tastes are keys to a street market success.
