Markets and pop-up events

Our boutique markets showcase the best local artisan makers, growers and producers. There’s no better way to rejuvenate a town centre than to provide a platform for local micro-businesses, who in turn bring trade to the area.

We operate regular pop-up artisan markets around North London. Please get in touch if you’d like to trade at one of our markets or organise a market in your town.


Dirthouse is the creation of Alison Roberts and Mike Hughes – the team behind the hugely successful East Finchley Festival, north London’s Courtyard Markets, and the ILoveN2 brand. With over 50 years’ experience between them in live music, festival and event management and marketing, the Dirthouse team is ready to offer you a tailor-made solution to plan and manage your event.

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for letting me be part of your event yesterday. I have been at many events as a stallholder in the past years but I have never seen such a well organised event like yesterday was. It was absolutely wonderful, brilliant stuff, amazing vibes and lovely lovely people. I had so many compliments and appreciation about my stall and products, I met with many happy and kind people. Well done!

– Tanya Hegedus, Stallholder
