Islington Life: Traders Win With Healthy Choices

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.
