With shops reopening and outdoor dining and drinking permitted, Camden saw life return on Saturday.
Shops are allowed to welcome in customers, with social distancing and mask wearing, and pubs and restaurants have opened their gardens – and music could once again be heard on the streets.
Maggie Milosavljevi, commercial director at LabTech, which owns Camden Market, said: “We're excited to safely welcome back customers to Camden and our markets.
"As the majority of our sites are open air, and with hand sanitiser stations and social distancing measures across the markets, we hope that this assures customers and traders that they are in a safe environment, and that their health and wellbeing is front of mind for us.
"It’s great to see there is very much still an appetite for spending on retail and entertainment in outdoor spaces such as ours.
"We had a great opening weekend with a return to independent shopping and dining out from locals and Londoners, and hope the continued sunshine helps to support this going forward."
