Islington Life: Traders Win With Healthy Choices

November 25th, 2017

islife17aServing up a healthy portion of our five-a-day has bagged two Islington traders the coveted title of Market Trader of the Year 2017.

Street food trader Serpil Erce, who serves up healthy salads from her stall Sunny Olive Tree at Whitecross Street Market, and fruit and veg seller Dave Jackson, based at Chapel Market, were both chosen by public vote.

Serpil won the take-away food category and Dave won in the general market goods category. They were presented with their prize – £150 off their ground rent – by Islington celebrity Su Pollard at the Chapel Market Christmas light switch-on event on Saturday 18 November.

A total of 256 votes were cast since the competition was launched in May, with shoppers, residents and visitors across the borough voting for their favourite street traders.

Annie Denny, who nominated Serpil, said it was because of her “service with a smile, and healthy food that gets us to eat our five-a-day!” Rob Walters nominated Dave because of his “lovely fresh veg and fruit. A nice guy who is pleasant and always cheerful.” Both shoppers will receive £50 to spend at their chosen trader’s stall.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and nothing marks the start of the festive season better than the annual Aylesbury Light Switch On in Market Square on Thursday 16 November.

Star of this year’s must-see pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Su Pollard is taking to the stage to hit the button, alongside fellow cast mates Andy Collins and larger-than-life La Voix – returning due to popular demand.

Su said: “I’m honoured to have been invited to turn on the town’s Christmas lights. Aylesbury’s going to be my Christmas home, so it will be a true pleasure to light up the town and see lots of the locals turning out en masse. I can’t wait to work up the crowd! As Wicked Queen, I won’t go home happy until I’ve heard a load of boos and cheers. This is will be the perfect warm up to the panto run!”


The Christmas lights switch-on event, hosted by Mix96 and managed by the Town Centre Partnership, will take place between 5.30pm and 7.30pm in Aylesbury’s Market Square along with a funfair in Kingsbury.
