Grow’s eco-conscious afternoon market in Main Yard, Hackney Wick challenges the status quo through conscious consumerism and explores a future founded on self-sustainability, cultural, social, wellbeing, and equality.
Brought to you by Grow, Hackney (an independent experiment in ethical and sustainable business & grassroots cultural hub) the Future Fair also celebrates a self-organising culture and the local creative talent of Grow Studios and Grow’s wider networks.
Expect hand-made prints, bespoke and organic clothing; independent art, and an outdoor bar selling Grow’s selected and signature drinks and food.
All necessary Covid-19 secure measures will be in place.
Surrounded by recently built planters with aromatic herbs and upcycled furniture made at workshops hosted by female collective ‘No Time to Waste’, the yard is the central point of Grow’s ecosystem which is a creative home to over fifty artists, practitioners, and independent businesses ranging from carnival costumiers, blacksmiths, fine artists, bike makers, a kombucha brewer and Grow, Hackney. Many of these artists have contributed to Grow’s design and build, including graffiti writers and mural artists; blacksmiths and eco-builders, all of whose work can be seen throughout the venue, canalside garden terrace and yard.
