Monday June 1st saw the opening of Camden Market since the COVID-19 lock-down.

Monday was the first day that the Camden Market was open since lock-down. This was imposed by the government on March 23rd. It started off slowly, with a few traders setting up and opening their shops and stalls.

Towards midday people started to enter the market, curious to see which stalls were open. Camden Market now has hand sanitiser dispensers across the market. 2m social distancing reminders are to be seen at many places.

A one-way traffic system is in place too, as found in many supermarkets, to avoid people walking towards each other or rubbing shoulders.

Camden Market has been one of London’s top attractions for over 45 years. More traders are expected to return around June 15th.

For now, if you fancy a bite to eat for takeaway from the market, Camden Market is the place to be. Make sure that you keep your social distancing when visiting some of the Instagrammable locations, like the Amy Winehouse statue or the entrance to Cyberdog.
