LabTech, the owners of Camden Market, have released their plans to reopen the market as soon as Monday, June 1st.
Camden Market has said that they expect 80% of their F&B traders to reopen from Monday. The retail traders, shop and stall owners, are expected to be able to open on June 15th.
LabTech offered all their trading tenants rent-free options, which were implemented in March.
The Camden Market will have social distancing measures in place. A one-way system and queuing outside all shops will be standard.
There will also be hand sanitizer stations across the market. Instructions to follow the one-way traffic will also be visible throughout.
Commenting on LabTech’s plans to re-open, Yaron Shahar, LabTech’s CEO, said: “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.
“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.”
Camden Market will still remain to be the home of London’s most creative and colourful shops, food stalls, and welcome locals and tourists alike.
