Officially the UK’s best street market

Last week Portobello and Golborne Market took the honour of Best Street/Outdoor Market in the national 2013 Market of the Year awards.

Award for best street market 2013

The awards were presented by Communities Minister Don Foster at a ceremony last Thursday, where the market was cited by judges for its diversity and community involvement.

It’s the second award to come to the market in recent weeks, after traders Mohammed and Ibrahim Siteri won the Best Takeaway or Street-food category at the 2012 BBC Food and Farming Awards late last year, for their Moroccan Soup stand in Golborne Road. (There’s a post about them here.)
