From E11 Market:

“E11 Market is open, free to the public every Saturday and trades on the pavement at Matalan, Leytonstone High Road.  We support the work of local charities, hand craft designers and local food producers.

We have a wide range of products on sale, including local Lea Valley Honey, home baked cakes, bread and biscuits, locally made garden ornaments including hand made bird boxes and feeders, hand sewn crafts, hand made greeting cards, natural fruit drinks, vintage collectibles, hand-made gemstone jewellery, hand blended skincare and vegetables from OrganicLea.

Our market is a great meeting place and contributes to the sociable community in Leytonstone.  We donate to the NSPCC and have ‘no steps’ wheelchair access”
