LabTech announces four new signings for Camden’s Buck Street Market
LabTech, the owner of Camden Market, has announced the signing of four new retailers for its Buck Street Market area.
The eco-friendly focused market sees sustainability-driven lifestyle retailer Londonworks, male grooming brand Sweyn Forkbeard, handmade babywear retailer Dress Up Baby and souvenirs traders To Home From London join over 80 other food and retail brands committed to sustainable practices.
Maggie Milosavljevic, LabTech’s retail commercial director, commented: “At Buck Street Market we are committed to delivering a revolutionary space that prioritises environmental education, conversation and positive change. Tailored towards the ‘conscious consumer’, our selection of local fashion retailers reflects our commitment towards championing sustainability.”
Lifestyle retailer, Londonworks, is set to open a dedicated "slow fashion" 900 sq ft space within Buck Street Market, offering trend-lend clothing, music, home décor and contemporary inspired gifts.
Sweyn Forkbeard, the male grooming brand that shares its name from the first Viking of England famed for his eternally immaculate hair and beard, is to open its sixth market space in London, taking a 74 sq ft site at Buck Street Market. With over 125 male grooming products on offer, each item is certified 100% organic, with a percentage of profits donated to local charity Camden Giving.
Handmade babywear retailer, Dress Up Baby, will open its third London market space at Buck Street Market, in addition to its present unit within Camden’s Stables Market and Spitalfields Market. It will offer bespoke clothing, accessories and toys for babies and toddlers, produced with natural materials such as linen, Merino wool and cotton in a 74 sq ft space.
To Home From London, the handcrafted London souvenir specialist, is set to open its third Camden store within Buck Street Market later this year. It will offer authentic gifts ranging from magnetic coasters to eco-bags featuring the iconic Camden Town underground roundel.
LabTech’s commitment to sustainability at Buck Street Market includes the use of 88 recycled shipping containers to house the market, recycling points set throughout the destination, zero-plastic on-site, and composting food waste from the food and beverage traders to generate energy that will be fed back into the power grid to produce electricity.
The launch of Buck Street Market will be followed by the opening of Hawley Wharf Camden, the 580,000 sq ft mixed-scheme development due to open later in 2020.
