On the 19 June Portobello Market is launching a new Art & Design Market, which will take place every weekend under the Westway on Portobello Road. The space that is currently derelict will be regenerated so that the market can take up residence there.

The market is set to be filled with an array of unique and creative treats, designed by artists and designers from London and beyond. For the first weekend of the new market some great designers and artists will be showcasing their wares including:

Fashion designer turned artist, Robert Carey Williams, showing his street wear collection of fashion and art www.robertcary-williams.co.uk

Graphic artist and illustrator, Chris Getliffe, www.getliffe.com

Artist and painter, Dorka Zgrzeba, www.coffeeandcigarettes.org

This space will also play host to a series of arty events including the Notting Hill Art Festival and a week long urban street-art event later this Summer.

It’s free admission and the Art and Design Market takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, from the 19th June.

The closest tube stations are Ladbroke Grove/Westbourne Park/Notting Hill Gate
