Trading at Camden Market for the last 10 years, Daniel Knight founder of Read / The / Label has come a long way and is looking to take the next step, creating a range of soap subscription packages, delivered direct to your door! 
The goal of the campaign is to be able to increase production so that the retail price is agreeable for all, without sacrificing our high quality ingredients. The bars are gentle on the skin and the environment: made from natural butters, clays, essential oils, and plant-based ingredients, avoiding the need for commercial surfactants found in liquid and many bar soaps. They are really effective at cleansing skin and they wash away and biodegrade easily.
Skincare soaps for all skin types! You can select from one of our many bundles (including the exfoliating bar box, lavender lovers selection, anti-allergen and sensitive skin boxes), or build a custom box of your favourites from our range of 23 aromatherapy soaps including turmeric, green tea, charcoal, rice milk and many other raw natural ingredient soaps. Can’t decide? Want to try something new? Choose our mystery subscription box and we’ll choose 3 soaps for you.

We are so excited to welcome everyone back to Camden Market as a place to sit, eat and shop whilst spending time in the fresh air.
   Closely following government guidelines, our retail will be reopening from Monday 15th June so that visitors can return to our shops and stalls, as well as our yards, to spend some socially-distanced time in the sun and eat from one of our many restaurants and street food operators (open for collection and delivery only).

Keeping our visitors and our traders safe


As we begin to welcome visitors back the Market, we are committed to keeping both customers and our traders safe and feeling comfortable. 
The practices we have put in place to do this are as follows:

A strict ‘one-way’ system enforced across the Market site
Floor markers that display good social distancing (at least 2 metres)
Tables and chairs set out in a socially distanced manner, for customers to sit and eat their food
A strict cleaning regime throughout the Market
Queuing spots outside shops and directional way-finding arrows
Security guards who are on hand to help direct, and  limit the flow of pedestrian traffic at entrances and ‘attraction’ points (Amy Winehouse statue, Cyberdog etc.)
Hand-sanitiser stations throughout the Market, available for all visitors to use

For the foreseeable future, traders will also be expected to adhere to factors in line with Government recommendations, including wearing masks and gloves at all times; limiting the number of customers entering at any one time, maintaining a strict cleaning regime, and accepting card payments only.  The recommendations will be upheld and supported by the Market management team.

Ghetto Grillz

How to Make the Reuben Bagel

Think you know bagels? You know nothing, until you’ve tried the Ghetto Grillz take on the New York Reuben: a gooey, cheesy, zingy, steaming hot meat sandwich stacked with juicy layers of salt beef, cheddar, Russian dressing and sauerkraut.
Co-founder Marisa Capaldi and her brother Phil spent over a year developing their classic-with-a-twist Reuben until they got it perfect. We don’t have that long, so who better to ask for a foolproof guide to doing it DIY.
Scrap rye bread.
Bagels are better because they absorb the acidity of the cabbage, the creaminess of the sauce, the gooeyness of the cheese, crisp up nicely on the outside and hold the whole thing tight. Ghetto get theirs from Brick Lane’s Beigel Bake.
Make your cheese mild.
If you want your cheese gooey, which you do, use a mild cheddar. A New York Reuben will traditionally be made with Swiss cheese but a good mild cheddar packs a bigger flavour punch and melts like a dream.
DIY the dressing.
Shop bought is a no-no – you want to play around with the flavours and tailor it to your taste buds. Russian dressing is essentially a mix of mayonnaise and ketchup, but you can add a drop of Worcester sauce or smoked paprika for a little kick, and even put chopped gherkins, dill pickle or onion in it.
Use the best-quality salt beef.
It’s about getting a cut that falls apart and melts in your mouth. Kettyle Irish Fine Foods, a family-run meat supplier is the best in the business. The cows are grass fed and the meat is salted in a way that makes it perfect for Reuben making.
