This bank holiday allmygoodness picked up our PAPPBRILLE sunglasses, threw on our Beyond Retro summer sandals and headed to the Red Market in Shoreditch, London. The market has perfect Sunday afternoon surroundings. Located on Rivington Street, this hip and happening area comes to life with this unique pop up market.

red marketThe market is now in its second year and still going strong. It has something for everyone; a home to local East London traders, artists and musicians. The market will be open from July 5th until September. The outdoor space has various installations including a stage, a summer house, a sand area, table tennis, hammocks and various artworks.

On Sunday 5th allmygoodness enjoyed performance art in the basement of the red market building. The performance was an interesting cacophony of sounds, played against dance music, whilst a man in a mask danced around various images played on second hand television sets from various eras, an interesting but eerie display.

allmygoodness invested in a fine new top from the red market t-shirt store. It was difficult to choose from their fantastic array of prints but the image of Bowie printed on organic cotton was too good to miss.

The best quality.’ allmygoodness particularly recommend Exhale, an intense wood-smoky base, created by Simon Constantine (the founder of Gorilla) with the natural products he discovered on his journey through Tibet.

Overall, the red market has something for everyone and allmygoodness would definitely suggest it as a great activity for these upcoming summer weekends.
