Chestnuts Market going monthly

ANNOUNCEMENT! Hello everyone Chestnuts Market is going MONTHLY. We are OPEN THIS Sunday 5th July. Next Market will be Sunday 2nd August.

Footfall has been lower in the past month and although so many of you come, support and enjoy the market every week – simply not enough to sustain a weekly market and not great for our lovely traders.

We are going to take the LESS IS MORE approach and make every First Sunday of the Month a big event with lots more stalls & themed, fun. Its not over because we love the market, its our way of keeping it going. Hope you understand.

Hope you will join us THIS SUNDAY for the last Chestnuts until August – We have some new stalls, which I will announce this week! Thanks to everyone who came down – see you Sunday? x Marika & Chestnuts Crew

Grainger meeting with Market traders re Apex House, 9th June.

In addition to the two drop-in sessions at CoNEL on 4th and 6th June, Grainger are sending invites to a presentation meeting with market traders on Tuesday 9th June.  This will be at the Pueblito Paisa cafe in the front of the market, from 6 to 7.30pm. The meeting promises to have a specific focus on the possible new market space within the Apex development.

“Representatives from the architects and developers will be on hand to talk you through the plans and answer any questions you may have.”

Though targeted at the market traders, for those of you who think CoNEL is too far away, or who can’t make the other meetings, this is also a chance to ask some of those questions about the design of the block from the outside. Focusing on use of the inside space may presume no-one is interested in what the bloody thing is like from outside. From miles away.
