DEPTFORD SUITCASE MARKET
The Deptford Suitcase Market aims to take advantage of creating informal trading along a newly proposed access route to Deptford Station. It aims to add informality to the current trading experience of Deptford market, enabling traders to rent an allotted trading area at an hourly rate. The market offers an undercover exterior space, for traders to pitch, public convenience for traders as well as the public, a ticket office (the first point of contact for suitcase traders) and an inclusive tea room, acting as a forum for buyers and sellers. The add hoc aesthetic is a reflection of the existing conditions within the Deptford area.
