Community Market Grand Opening

We are a Not for Profit company organising and administering Community Projects that are intended to help provide employment, education and social activities at affordable prices.

We are an Indoor Market with stallholders selling hand crafted or cooked items, antiques, retro, upcycling and the like. This is a community based project funded entirely by the rental income from the stalls, and any profits ploughed back into the project for development and expansion. Rental income is kept deliberately low to enable small manufacturers to obtain High Street profile at a very low cost.

The intention of the market is to allow small manufacturers the possibility of three days per week income, using the remainder of the time to make or source stock. In addition to the stalls we hope to have beverages and snacks on the go, a book nook, plus seating scattered around in various places for people to sit and read, chat, doze or whatever they feel they need to do. This is a community space, we would like people to feel it is there second home with no obligation to buy, but to create a friendly atmosphere where members of the community can socialise during the daytime without the necessity of alcohol being available.

The Community Market is expanding every week, with more tables and later workshops and courses, special demonstrations and various other goodies for people to enjoy, especially our special guests on 10th December (watch this space!).
