It was so lovely to get to Camden Lock Market early this morning and see the ‘bones’ of the place before the daily stream of visitors arrived. It is so unique a place and I was lucky enough this morning to be there to take part in their ‘pop-up’ radio show as part of a Peoples Republic of Christmas campaign – ‘an independent state for independents’, for which some fantastic visuals have been created around the market.  A great example of branding your offer.

It was great fun being in the studio and answering questions based on the resurgence of interest in markets … to what makes Camden Lock unique.  I was asked to bring along some music to play that resonated what markets mean, and todays choice was ‘Lets Start" by Fela Kuti, as my love for markets started in Lagos, Nigeria as a child visiting Bar Beach Market.  A real trip down memory lane.

And all finished off with some time to buy some unique gifts to put under the Christmas Tree and great coffee to wake me up at French and Grace.
