Tomorrow’s Market is a new and innovative business support programme from the London Growth Hub that aims to nurture a new generation of market traders – people that are currently working from home, in pop-ups or online, and have a unique product or service to sell.
Tomorrow’s Market is supporting new businesses to grow, to reach new customers and audiences, and to work with experienced traders and business experts to achieve success.
Market trading is low cost, no boss, flexible and high return – we are giving ambitious Londoners, with an entrepreneurial flair, the chance to turn clever ideas into sustainable businesses.
Find Your Local Market
The Tomorrow Market programme aims to breathe new life into London’s traditional markets, building on their heritage and assets. Markets should serve the basic needs of the community, providing food, clothing, electronics and household goods, and offer more niche items, such as antiques, vintage, bric-a-brac and collector items. Currently, markets don’t tend to push the boundaries or offer something new – we want to shake things up so that consumers come back to the high street and support local and independent trade.
Tomorrow’s Market will introduce fresh talent and present new ways to update and revive old traditions. Tomorrow’s Market’s will shine a spotlight onto London’s world renowned markets, with the aim of kick-starting a market revolution that benefits all traders.
