BARRATT LONDON GIVES NEWHAM COMMUNITY A ‘TASTE OF THE EASTERN END’ WITH POP-UP FOODIE MARKET

On Saturday, November 13, Barratt London welcomed a pop-up food market to the Upton Gardens development in Upton Park. The market, which hosted the Urban Food Fest, included a selection of street food trucks and a bar, with musicians ready to provide lively entertainment for visitors.

The food available included tasty offerings of baked chicken wings and fritters from Baked Bird, pulled meat wraps from Better Pulled and curries and samosas from Pink Oven. For those with a sweet tooth, Sweet Sis provided cakes, waffles and crepes, while Café Bueno warmed visitors up with its hot drinks.

Pam Reardon, Sales and Marketing Director at Barratt East London, said: “It was wonderful to see residents and community members socialize and enjoy the food and drink on offer at Upton Gardens. Thank you to all the vendors who attended the event, to the musicians and to Urban Food Fest to help make this a great day for everyone involved. “

The event concluded with a life-size anamorphic 3D street painting by world-renowned artist Joe Hill (3D Joe & Max), which was on display for visitors to interact with. The artwork gave viewers an insight into the development’s past as the former site of West Ham United’s Old Boleyn Ground, with a giant bubble hovering over the stadium. Participants were encouraged to take pictures of themselves sitting inside the bubble and to share them on social media using the hashtag #StreetArtUpton.
