// Buck Street Market signs on four new retailers to join eco-friendly line-up of 80 businesses
// Buck Street Market is near Camden Market in North London, and will open early March
// The four new retailers joining are Londonworks, Sweyn Forkbeard, Dress Up Baby & To Home From London
Buck Street Market has announced the signing of four new retailers joining the scheme, as the North London shopping destination readies itself for the grand opening next month.
The latest retailers joining the Buck Street Market line-up include sustainability-focused lifestyle retailer Londonworks, male grooming brand Sweyn Forkbeard, handmade babywear retailer Dress Up Baby, and souvenir traders To Home From London.
Labtech, the company that owns both Buck Street Market and nearby Camden Market, said the new signings set the benchmark for London’s first eco market.

Labtech also told Retail Gazette that Buck Street Market will officially open in early March, and will feature over 80 other food and retail businesses committed to sustainable practices and processes.
Buck Street Market will use 88 recycled shipping containers to house the market, and feature recycling points set throughout the destination as well as an on-site zero-plastic policy.
The market – located in a section of Camden Market along the corner of Buck Street and Camden High Street – will also compost food waste from the food and beverage traders to generate energy that will be fed back into the power grid to produce electricity.
“At Buck Street Market we are committed to delivering a revolutionary space that prioritises environmental education, conversation and positive change,” Labtech retail commercial director Maggie Milosavljevic said.
“Tailored towards the ‘conscious consumer’, our selection of local fashion retailers reflects our commitment towards championing sustainability, mirroring the aims held across our eco conscious food and beverage portfolio.
“We are confident our selection of retailers will embrace the ethical aims held by Buck Street Market, delivering a vibrant and sustainable lifestyle destination.”
The launch of Buck Street Market will be followed by the opening of Hawley Wharf Camden; a 580,000sq ft mixed-scheme development due to open later this year.
Hawley Wharf will deliver a unique Camden-style ecosystem for visitors and workers to enjoy.
The canal-side mixed-use development will provide 150 shops, over 60 places to eat, 195 apartments and 50,000sq ft of co-working space.
