Union Market Fullham

Last update: 23.11.10 First posted: 23.11.10 by in

Is this a model for Todmorden market of the future? Andrew Hartley the cheese man told me about this place, and whilst in London at the weekend for mummybears 80th birthday, we took the oppertunity to check it out.

The market is in the beautiful Fullham Broadway tube station, the new station is down the road.

The pictures tell a the story, this place is effectively a supermarket of food from small producers, well lit well designed with a unified friendly feel.
Its a place to eat and hang out as well as to shop, and everythings avalable delivered.

One checkout for everything, pre packed produce or cut to order by knowlegable friendly staff. Obviously in the centre of London they have a looser definition of local produce than we have in Todmorden,our market has a supply chain this place must envy,we have farmers selling thier own meat, but they have modern retail down to a fine art. We asked and although it is on a market model its actually one business, but all the same it shows what could be with a little tweaking to our market.
