DIY Art Market: Christmas Special
We're not sure if you're just playing it cool and all that with the gift buying this year but CHRISTMAS IS COMING and we don't want you to endure the traditional panic. So check this: an art market giving you the chance to get those little mitts on some original and beautifully designed products. Some of London's finest independent publishers and emerging or established artists will be selling their stuff - 70 to be precise - providing an excellent opportunity to discover new publishers and artists doing their thing. What kind of items can you expect to see? Art prints, ceramics, zines and independent publications, illustration, photography, jewellery, sewn items, comics, custom tees, homemade cassettes, screen prints, records... and artists' books. Plenty then.
Tickets: Free entry

Growing Communities Farmers' Market
Wake up early this Saturday and take a stroll down to this sustainable farmer's market, right on the border of Dalston and Stokey. Every farmer at this market has been certified as either organic or bio-dynamic, which will be music to the ear of those with a healthy green conscience. Grab your weekly bulk of fruit and veggies here and not only will you enjoy the fresh taste of quality produce, but you will also help support small sustainable farms and farmers around London - it's an all-round win.
Broadway Market is the street market to end all street markets; rowdy pubs, delicious food from independent stalls, pretty cafes and funked-up gift shops all line the streets. Best explored on the weekend with a hangover. Opening Times - Saturday: 09:00 to 17:00
You Were High When I Was Doomed
IMT kick their 2017 programme off with this opaquely titled group show. Alright, we're into it, opaque is fine with us, we like working things out for ourselves. The common thread running through the works is that they're to do with the past, and what remains of the artefacts of contemporary modernity. It's about endings and afterendings. A mashed up canvas of what we've just seen, creating something new. Might be one you need to go and look at to really get to the bottom of, we suspect.
Women of Ghana
Head to Hoxton Square on Friday and Saturday and you'll find a free photography and film exhibition showing the stories of the women of Ghana. The idea is to give a vivid documentation of women who have achieved their ambitions and overcome hardships such as poverty, low levels of literacy and even just being a woman. The words come from the ladies themselves, so you can expect something quite powerful.
