More street markets in Haringey?

I think this is great news and something that network should be supporting. Street markets are an important part of a sustainable local economy, even if they are not "farmers' markets". At the very least they don't involve a whole lot of chiller cabinets without doors!

It's funny how little study there is of the impact of street markets - try finding something about it online, and all you find is neo-liberal economics about the efficiency of "the markets", meaning financial markets. Time for some proper action-oriented research on real markets.
