Food, to boot

Community organisation, The Bootstrap Company, has launched a series of pop-up food markets in Dalston, collectively called The Long Table, which places emphasis on conviviality and using local producers.

The project will use collaborators from London’s finest street food and restaurants, including Nuno Mendes from the Loft Project and Moro. This is a great example of Conviviality Culture.

Bootstrap itself was founded in 1977 as a development trust, social enterprise and charity. Since then Bootstrap has transformed the cultural and creative life of its corner of Dalston. It looks to build on the lessons learned over the last 32 years to improve the social, physical and economic environment of the people of Dalston and Hackney. Bootstrap Company exists to support and facilitate the growth of micro, creative and social enterprises and provides high quality managed workspace.
