We were chatting to local businesses and our community who said a market would be a great way to bring Manor Street alive, support local businesses, make great use of Union Corner and bring the community together.
The first market was held on Saturday 5th May 2018, it was filled with interesting objects, food, music, activities, some fancy yellow umbrella’s and luckily lots of sunshine. We have had over 40 people come have a table and many of them have returned. We support under 18’s to test and sell their product or idea from a suitcase, providing £25 start up grants and business support. Keep scrolling to see more info below!
It is more than just a market, it has grown into a place to make connections, a place to go on a Saturday if your feeling lonely and in need of some advise. The social benefit come’s first and trading is second.
Everyone is welcome.
We keep the offer affordable for our local community with fun for families, music and refreshments.
Spaces start from £5 for local people, if you would like a space to sell things or run and activity please get in touch.
We are also looking for food stalls/vans and street performers, particularly local people. If that’s you get in touch.
Running your own event?
The beautiful market umbrellas are available for other communities to use, get in touch with us.
We are supporting young people to have a go at selling out of a suitcase. Check out a few ideas kids had at our markets last year! Get in touch if you or someone you know would like to have a go!
