The Youth Market

We are proud to be London's first and best Youth Market. The Youth Market opens up new audiences for aspiring 16-25 year olds so that they can turn their idea into a business.

All of the products you'll find here have been hand crafted and are the result of passion, time, energy and care. You'll find things you simply wouldn't be able to buy elsewhere.

We have worked to unearth and curate an exciting line-up of local creatives who we are incredibly proud to show to the world.

We ran our first market early in 2019 in response to the lack of opportunity availale to enterprising young people.

Since then the project has grown and grown to the point that we felt an e-commerce platform was a natural and necessary evolution.


“It's impactful, local, sustainable and successful”
