It’s great to see local traders bringing life to St Augustine's Square, the new public space in the Narrow Way. The Council has been working with Hackney Central’s St John-at-Hackney to help start up this new weekday market, it will be a great addition to the Narrow Way's growing reputation as a flourishing shopping destination.
