islife18aSu got into the festive spirit at the weekend, presenting prizes to Islington’s market traders, as reported by Islington Life.

Two long-standing and popular stall holders have been named Islington’s Market Traders of the Year 2018.

David Brastock, whose card stall has been operating in Chapel Market for 50 years, and Serpil Erce, behind Sunny Olive Tree stall at Whitecross Street Market, were presented with their prize – £150 off their ground rent – by Islington celebrity Su Pollard and the Mayor of Islington, Cllr Dave Poyser, at the Chapel Market Christmas light switch-on event on Saturday 17 November.

David’s daughter Jo Coote, who now runs the card stall, said: “It’s fantastic to have won this competition on our 50th year in Chapel Market. It is thanks to our wonderful customers and we are so proud to have been nominated by them.”

Serpil, who won the Market Trader of the Year title last year and in 2009, said: “I am overwhelmed and delighted to have won this for the second year in a row. We have lovely and loyal customers, who know that we will be out in Whitecross Street come rain or shine.”
