News & Updates


Following a successful crowd funding campaign, WESTRA (Well Street Traders and Residents Association) have created an innovative community street market. 

Well Street Market is more than a market, it's a creative community hub that supports and nurtures locals.

The Mayor of London said at our launch that the best way our community can support us is to shop at Well Street Market, make our traders feel welcome and for our community to come and enjoy every market day.

We want to hear from our community about what you would like to see on our live music stage.  We are keen to hear about local singers, musicians, DJs and bands so please contact us if you would like to perform.

Meet our local creative designers and makers and see their amazing work at the Student Makers Market. Support our young entrepreneurs at our Teenage Market. We provide free stalls, training and support to nurture and develop talent in our community. 

Please support our local traders, makers and producers and shop locally at Well Street Market.

The street is also home to an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and independent pubs.



CamilLe walala mural



International artist Camille Walala, known for her striking ‘tribal pop’ style, has also transformed the most prominent corner facade on Well Street in Hackney, at the junction with Valentine Road and Terrace Road.

The artistic intervention is part of a collaboration with Well Street Traders and Residents Association (WESTRA) and urban visionaries Colour Your City – an initiative that uses colour to positively transform urban space, to improve and beautify the street with art and colour. Volunteers from the local community helped to paint the artwork, including young people from our Student Makers Market.

Walala has a strong personal connection to the area: “Well Street most definitely is a special place for me. I used to live on this street whilst I was trying my best to promote myself as an artist. I love the sense of community here between shop owners and residents. It means a lot to me to be able to contribute something to help promote and give this great area a bit of a facelift. My work is all about fun, bold shapes and colour! I want to make people smile.”
