Wembley Market Moving To Hanger Lane?

Breaking: Wembley market could be hanging up its reigning title and relocating to Hanger Lane. An unhappy market trader expresses grief about moving to Hanger Lane and whether loyal customers will hang around?

The market is a valuable part of Wembley, stretching back to the early 70’s and still going strong today. Like many of you, I have early memories of this place; as a kid in the 80’s, waiting in anticipation at the weekend to go down to the market to get spoiled with cheap battery operated toys that I would only break a few days later. Or in the 90’s, seeking some jacket emblazoned with American football team badges. Whether they were counterfeit or not I had no idea, it was the 90’s, a completely different era.

On recent occasions going to Wembley market in the 00’s, it has been to join the queue for a Sunday helping of jerk chicken or other world food.

Wembley market operators Wendy Fair haven’t confirmed where they’re moving to; although they have revealed on their site “The best news is that when the market moves we will be open every week”.

In the shadow of Wembley Stadium the market has always been closed during event days.

I’m sure you’re hearing more about London’s first Designer Outlet the Wembley LDO, which is opening up for business following the Sunday market departure.

  • Hi I was most disgusted today to drive from where I live in south London to go to the new market site which was advertised on this web site as being open again too find when I got there the gate’s shut and some security heavy’s in cars and vans on the other side telling everyone who turned up that the market is finished one will be no more also saying that there was not a licence to have a market there so had been closed down there were also sign’s on the fences saying NO MARKET ON THIS SITE there was also a notice on the gate’s to this affect saying that the owners had basically broken in and reclaimed the land what is going on Wendy fair be fair on the market goer’s and trader’s and stop wasting everybody’s time and get it right before advertising that the market was back on again and in full swing I await your reply .

    P.s.

  • Hey Guys we are trying to inform everyone what is happening. Website, face book Twitter is updated each week. So Sorry we do not have any more news yet of when and where Wembley Sunday Market will be opening. It is a giant beast to up and move. Bovingdon Market, near Hemel hempstead, is open every Saturday and has a lot of the same traders. Try it for a bargain or two. From Wendy Fair Markets.

  • Sorry,Wembley market is (was) a shit hole more security than a night club. Only 40% of the stalls were (are) any good. No one wanted to part with their money unless car boot sale prices. Yes I will admit you could (CAN) get some nice things there BUT still a dump…..
