The best of Ilford green businesses at Ilford green pop up market, 13 May 10-2

green pop up market bikesEight bikes were sold by Recycles in a record Spring Sale last month! See if we can top that!  Fabulous news as Recycles beats their own record of selling bikes, yeepee!

Spring is in the air and we can smell the organic coffee 🙂

Coming up on our next Ilford Green Pop up market we have bath bombs courtesy of two young entrepreneurs. Melanie of MelOrganic will be providing luxurious hand-made beauty products. If you’re conscious about the products you use and put on your skin, MelOrganic is the brand for you.

Padma of Green Mystique will also be joining us with her jute bags crafted with recycled materials to raise funds for charity.  This new business is a social enterprise.

Sue will be raising funds and selling beautiful bric-a-brac in her quest to raise money for Celia Hammond charity.

Peter will be selling his jewellery made with upcycled jewellery parts. Lorraine will be showcasing her knitted items.

Shoba will be bringing awareness on the wonderful app Olio which allows you to give
