Prototype Stall Trader Engagement

Greig & Stephenson Architects have been working on designing a suitable market stall structure for Whitechapel Market. Before the design is finalised, a trail version of the stalls (a Prototype) will be installed to test its functionality with market traders. Traders will be able to use the Prototype stalls during market hours to understand how the new stalls can benefit their business and work with the project team to understand any issues which can then be addressed before the design is rolled out to the whole market.

We hosted a Trader Engagement Event on Thursday 17th March 2022 to share plans for the prototype and colour samples for the tarpaulin, see boards from the event here.

The feedback during the event was positive and traders that attended were keen to see the prototype installed. The pilot scheme is planned to last for six months so that traders who wish to trial the stalls can. The feedback from traders during the trial is very important in shaping the final design of the new stalls.

We are currently in the process of procuring a fabricator to build the prototype and will provide a further update once an appointment has been made.
