UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR ‘MAKERS AND MERCHANTS’ AT WEMBLEY PARK MARKET

  • ‘Makers and merchants’ of all shapes and sizes are invited to join Wembley Park Market
  • Curated community of independent traders to launch in London’s new creative neighbourhood
  • Latest addition to £3bn, 85-acre Quintain redevelopment

Bringing a 21st Century approach to one of the oldest retail and community traditions, Quintain will launch Wembley Park Market this spring. The curated community of businesses and brands across lifestyle, fashion, wellness and food and drink is the latest addition to the £3bn North London regeneration project, further cementing its status as the capital’s newest creative neighbourhood.
 
‘Makers and merchants’ are invited to find out more about the opportunities at Wembley Park Market, the 4,000 sq ft retail space in the heart of the scheme.
 
Matt Slade, Retail Director at Quintain, said: “The addition of Wembley Park Market is an important reflection of Wembley’s rich heritage. This area has long been a hot bed of creativity and grass-roots entrepreneurship. Wembley Park Market, by its very nature, will be an environment which supports this and in which it can continue to be cultivated. We are looking for exciting independent, artisanal ‘makers and merchants’ that offer services, crafts and products, to make up the tapestry of a vibrant, modern market.”
 
The newly created market will be operated by MrktMrkt, a London-based, innovative market and retail emporium developer and operator.  The eye-catching space, with a flexible, modular layout, will provide an unparalleled opportunity for brands of all shapes and sizes, including both established businesses and start-ups, to mould the space to fit their own offer.
 
Rudi Schogger, Founder and Managing Director of MrktMrkt, said: “We believe that modern markets are intrinsically linked to the fabric of a community. Quintain’s ethos of championing the local community whilst nurturing Wembley Park’s unique culture is the reason for choosing to work together at this landmark location. We hope Wembley Park Market will become a local gem that will provide a continually change of choices for locals and visitors alike.“
 
A seamless, multi-channel blend of retail, leisure and e-commerce, Wembley Park Market will embrace the newest technology. Digitally-interactive brand showcases will bridge the gap between online and physical retail by allowing shoppers to engage with, and purchase, products online via QR code.
 
In its recent report ‘Development & Place’, Cushman & Wakefield recognised the role that the reinvention of the traditional market is playing in the rejuvenation of retail destinations. It said that ‘considerable loyalty to the format’ has stopped markets from disappearing from high streets. Additionally, it noted that ‘a new generation of customers is discovering the market for itself and reshaping how they are likely to operate in the future’.
 
Wembley Park Market is the latest addition to what will be a stimulating spectrum of imaginative attractions created by the development which is set to attract over 20 million visitors per year once completed.
 
National and international attractions, including Wembley Stadium connected by EE, The SSE Arena, Wembley, London Designer Outlet, and seasonal events, will sit alongside independent shops and restaurants to create a year-round experiential destination for residents, local workers and visitors.
 
Wembley Park Market will join a line-up that already includes the recently opened Boxpark Wembley and Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre which launches later this year.
 
Just 12 minutes from Baker Street, 19 minutes from Kings Cross and 23 minutes from Waterloo, Wembley Park is one of the UK best connected districts and is serviced by the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines, as well as national rail from Wembley Stadium station to Marylebone and out to the Chilterns.
 
Agents for Wembley Park are Nash Bond and Cushman & Wakefield.
