Woodgrange Market Place

Corner of Woodgrange Road and Sebert Road, E7, near Forest Gate station

The Market Place currently runs on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Some of the various stalls are shown in the left side-panel and below are examples of their wares. Remember, though, that not all stalls are there every week. Also, there are other regular stalls not included here. One of the most successful is the local Women's Institute stall, which is here every month.

Woodgrange Market Organic Vegetables is one of the founding stalls of the market, providing fresh locally sourced vegetables and highly popular free-range eggs. It is run by a team of local volunteers helping on a rotating basis.

Wine Scouts. Established in London in the autumn of 2014, The Wine Scouts is a merchant selling natural wine, championing established and emerging producers who work on tiny estates across Europe producing organic, biodynamic and low-intervention wines. We have quickly established a position as an exciting and vibrant company bringing truly original and rare wines to a hungry and rapidly evolving market. Trading at foodie markets, pop-up venues, and with private and corporate clients we are bringing expressive wines that demonstrate integrity, character and terroir.

Living Well E7. Living Well E7 aim to offer the residents of Forest Gate an eco-friendly and environmentally-sound range of products and bring variety and choice to the area. We will be selling at the market and at the Emporium, lots of health foods, for all your needs. If we do not have exactly what you want let us know and we can try and source it.

Forest Grater. The Forest Grater is all about sourcing fantastic cheese. Buying British where we can, learning about the Artisan cheese makers and choosing favourites from abroad. You can always try before you buy.

There is always appetising food at the market, though if you prefer you can pop into one of the nearby coffeeshops, e.g. Kaffeine and COFFEE7.

Locally-produced bread is available, and generally fast-selling. There is a good range of specialist savoury and fruit breads as well as basic white and wholemeal.

Malv's Bakes provides delicious home-made cakes at a good price. Eat here or take home for later. Malv lives in Manor Park.

There are also various other stalls, some of which are illustrated in the photos.

SUPPORT WOODGRANGE MARKET PLACE!

The market, now over two years old, continues to provide a real service to the local community. Everyone comments on the community feel of the market; and many are now regularly coming along to do their shopping, have breakfast or lunch - sometimes both! - and catch up with friends. "It's becoming a real community hub", says Laura, one of the organisers.

As word has spread, the range of stalls has increased. The market organisers aim to bring diversity and vitality to the high street, offering a wider choice for consumers and encouraging more people to 'shop local'.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that this is not the first market to occupy this site and the façade of the building opposite is engraved with the words "Market Place". If readers know more about the previous market, the organisers would love to hear from them.
