community market with a difference
Our seasonal Pop-Up Market trade between the months of May-November at community events and festivals. We host festive markets in December.
I have been trading 3 years with IYLM. Andrea is a great women to work with and I support her work and what she's doing for the community.
IYLM not only helps us build our businesses but can and does encourage others to begin their own.
As far back as I can remember I have loved to draw, and I made the decision very early on that I wanted to be an artist. I grew up in Brixton during the 80s and 90s, and whilst growing up, art was both my passion and an escape for me.
I have been trading with IYLM for 4 years. I enjoy trading IYLM as I'm able to promote diversity as well as empowering my people in the Brixton community.
