Camden Market is set to reopen next week with 80% of its F+B traders.

Labtech, the owner of the market, has revealed detailed plans for a 1 June reopening in line with the government’s latest announcement on an easing of lockdown.

A series of measures including a strict one-way system, frequent hand sanitiser stations and customer volume limits will be put in place.

The market is expected to open in phases, with F+B traders the first to return followed by retail traders from 15 June.

As all traders adapt to the ‘new normal,’ Labtech has extended its rent-free period, initially introduced three months ago.

“We have three priorities as we prepare to re-open. Doing so safely and responsibly for visitors, traders and the wider community, supporting traders as comprehensively as possible as they re-start their businesses, and learning from this first phase as we plan to open Buck Street and other areas of the estate,” said Yaron Shaher, LabTech CEO.

“Our comprehensive range of measures has been devised to ensure we can achieve these objectives and we will continue to support our local businesses through these unprecedented times as we move out of lockdown.”

“The market has thrived for 45 years and we are confident it will continue to be the heart of North London for many years to come.”
