The North Harrow street market is to become a permanent fixture following a pilot event in March.
The market will be a three day, once a month event following the successful pilot funded by the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund. It is hoped it will help the ailing high street. More than 4000 people attended the March market, reports the Harrow Times, and now the council has decided to make it a permanent addition to the North Harrow scene.
Councillor Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and regeneration, said: “The street market is about bringing the bustle back to North Harrow. It will help the local economy grow by attracting more shoppers to the area while providing local entrepreneurs with the chance to start up their own businesses.”
