Vicky Alvarez speaks with a fellow trader from Iran at Seven Sisters Indoor Market. While the market is mostly Latin – with traders from Colombia, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, and Portugal – over the years other nationalities have also found the market a good place to operate businesses. Alvarez, who came to the UK fleeing violence in Colombia, says the "market family" has been a huge source of support to her over the years. Recently the local Haringey Council issued a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) which demands that traders vacate the property, which has been marked for redevelopment.
