Shop local this Independents’ Weekend
Published: Friday, July 1, 2022
Support independent businesses in your local community this weekend (2 and 3 July) to mark the annual Independents’ Weekend campaign.
Wandsworth is home to an abundance of independent retailers, restaurants and bars which bring life and variety to the borough’s town centres at Balham, Clapham Junction and Battersea, Putney, Tooting and Wandsworth Town.
Enjoy your local town centre this weekend and over the summer, supporting independent traders and local businesses. Or get online to shop with local suppliers or order from a local restaurant.
Watch the video below to hear from the Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Jeremy Ambache, who visited Old York Road where hospitality businesses have been given extra space for al fresco dining.
Don’t forget the ways you can help support your local shops and cafes:
- Visit your local town centre or neighbourhood for shopping and eating
- be inspired with Wandsworth Council's Independent Shops Directory
- use the My Virtual Wandsworth directory, which features more than 600 local businesses
- download and follow the Wandsworth Food and Drink trails.
