North End Road Market

Hammersmith and Fulham’s North End Road Market has been at the centre of our local community for over 130 years. Today, you’re likely to find stalls that have been ran by the same family for generations. Recognised as a place for people, North End Road Market has a unique history that brings the community together to purchase fresh goods from across the globe and catch up with their neighbours.

The North End Road Action Group brings together residents, businesses, market traders, local organisations and Hammersmith & Fulham Council with an aim of reviving North End Road as a thriving high street for those near and far to visit and enjoy.

In this series of interviews with the market’s traders and figureheads, we’re uncovering just what makes North End Road Market so special.

Fabiano Soares Mendonca

What brought you here? We looked around other areas, but they've got Brazilian butcher's already. We realised that business-wise, Fulham has lots of different kinds of communities plus a very big South American community. That’s perfect for us because we don't only try to sell to Brazilian or South American families, the shop is for everyone.

What do you love most about North End Road Market?
The variety. It’s a mixture of a lot of societies and ethnic groups. You see people from all over the world - Asia, Africa, Europe, the United States. North End Road is one of the most important gates to the Southwest of London. It's like a port.

What do you love most about North End Road Market?

The variety and inclusivity of the place. Anyone can shop there – regardless of where you’re from. I like the market’s history too. It’s a part of my heritage. But ultimately, the place is all about people - markets are really social places. And of course, the economic value of the place is great. It’s among the highest quality, cheapest fruit and veg markets in London.

What do you love most about North End Road Market?
The culture and the characters that come along with it. The diversity of people. The culture behind it. The market’s been standing for so many years. We just want to bring our own little twist to it – something contemporary and upmarket. We bring our own coffee, which we roast. We’ve got one van at the moment, but we wholesale and retail our coffee too.
