Welcome to my new podcast, Pod On The Block, this show is my attempt to continue to showcase authentic local voices from urban spaces.

Wembley Market is back to set the record straight about why it really was forced to close down.

It’s been four years since Wembley Market, the biggest Sunday market in the UK closed down. This blog still receives thousands of visitors searching for Wembley Market opening times. So I thought about getting in touch with Wendy Fair markets who operated Wembley market and asked if they would like to be the first guest on my podcast, and they agreed!

On this episode we discuss:

  • The legacy of Wembley Market.
  • Why did the market really close?
  • The issue Wembley Market had with fakes.
  • Wembley Market’s last day.
  • Relocating Wembley market.
  • Opening Stonebridge market.

Our first episode is unmissable! Listen to Wendy Fair Markets, finally clear the air about why Wembley Market closed.
