In a move announced today by the owners of Camden Market, from next month the market will have a new name.
As a part of the rebranding to coincide with many new shops opening after the Covid lockdown period, the market has decided to go for a new image. “History plays a big part of Camden Market, and indeed the Borough of Camden itself” says market director, April Fuller. She continues, “Nelson Mandela had visited Camden Market numerous time on his trips to the UK, and we thing it’s fitting to pay tribute to him by renaming the market after him.”
From next month, a stature of Nelson Mandela will be placed facing the Amy Winehouse statue, and a social media campaign #mandelamarket will be launched.
Residents of Camden Town will already be familiar with Mandela Street, just off Plender Street, and Nelson Mandela House towards Stoke Newington.
