As a part of the Netflix UK Documentary Talent Fund 2022, two market traders from Edmonton Green Shopping Centre have featured in a new Netflix documentary short Women of the Market.
The film, showcasing woman of markets in London, , highlights one of the underrepresented voices within the community. Ameya John-Lewis, owner of Ameya World Professional Style, and Rakel Ewan-Boulyn, owner of Brothers Fruit and Veg Store, have been working in Edmonton Green Market for years both feature in the film.
Rakel Ewan-Boulyn commented: “I love it when customers visit as they get a taste of their home while they are here. Not only with the produce we sell but the people, the place and the food. It all just reminds them, as well as us, of being back home and that fills us with immense pride.”
Ameya John-Lewis said: “I love what I do and all the customers I create clothes for. When I make them feel good in what they are wearing, it makes me very happy. I can’t wait to get to work every day. Even if I am sick, I am still excited to go.”
And Rebecca Bird, retail manager at Edmonton Green Shopping Centre said “We are truly so proud of Rakel and Ameya. Watching them live was fantastic. They really are such a joy to know and be around and they bring a different element to the market.”
