LabTech, owner of Camden Market, has announced its eco-led sister development Buck Street Market will officially reopen for business today, 15 July.

Kick starting eco-friendly trading in Camden will be 80% of Buck Street’s traders, followed by its rooftop restaurants and the first floor intimate fine-dining concept, opening on 18 July.

All brands at Buck Street Market remain committed to sustainable practices and processes, with recycling points set throughout the destination, and a zero-single-use-plastic on-site policy.

Following the successful re-opening of Camden Market on 1 June, LabTech is introducing similar measures at Buck Street Market to ensure the safety of visitors, workers and the local community. These include:

  • A ‘one-way’ system across the site, with directional wayfinding arrows
  • Installation of floor markers that display good social distancing
  • Public hand sanitiser stations positioned throughout the market

Traders are also expected to adhere to factors in line with Government recommendations, including limiting the number of customers entering at any one time, maintaining a strict cleaning regime, and accepting card payments only, where possible.

Maggie Milosavljevic, LabTech’s Commercial Director, said: “It is important we continue to communicate the guidelines we have in place across our estate. Since reopening Camden Market successfully, and now reopening Buck Street Market we are continuing to build momentum for businesses across Camden, while ensuring all our visitors and staff remain safe and secure.

This has been an unprecedented time for many businesses, and we are proud to be able to welcome back so many traders and consumers at their own pace. As a leading London landlord, we strive to support unique ventures such as Buck Street Market, which provides a great concept for our eco-conscious community; an area we are all increasingly aware of as a result of lockdown.”

The launch of Buck Street Market will be followed by the opening of Hawley Wharf Camden; a 580,000 sq ft mixed-scheme development due to open later in 2020.
