Queens Market in Upton Park, East London, is arguably the most diverse market in London. It sits right next to the Upton Park underground station and so the local Council, Newham, tried to ‘redevelop’ the site with an Asda store and luxury flats but their chosen developer was driven out by market supporters and traders in 2009. The Council planners continue to eye the site and the local community keep their eyes on the planners: meanwhile the market flourishes !
