The Make & Mend Market returns to the Grainger Market for a Christmas Special. After a break we’re back and better than ever. We’ll be located throughout the market with an amazing array of handmade local goodies, gifts and treats for all the family. Unique creations for the hard to shop for can be found right here!
Due to the Coronavirus we are cancelling our 4th April and 2nd May Make & Mend Markets, at least in person. During the time the markets would take place we will be running a Virtual Make & Mend. I invite you to meet our traders and join them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and around the web using the hashtag #virtualmakeandmend.
During this time we’ll also be sharing posts by the wonderful traders of the Grainger Market, our regular venue. Many of them are noticing it’s a bit quiet right now, a lot of them are able to deliver to your home. Support your local market!
All being well we plan to resume regular market days in the Grainger Market on 6th June 2020. We hope to see you all there.

Join our new market!
We’re looking for stallholders for our brand new market, the Make & Print Market. Bringing zines, books, comics, art, prints and related activities to the Grainger Market four times a year.
Tables are £25. The Make & Print Market will take place in the Grainger Market on each of the above dates, 9am to 5pm. You can book for as many or few dates as you like, a table and chairs are provided.
We’re also looking for related all ages activities the public can take part in during the market, with a friendly and creative atmosphere.
Each stall must have public liability insurance for £5 million. This is required by the council. We can recommend affordable PLI options designed specifically for artists and market traders.
To book just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who you are and what you’d like to bring to the market.
Or if you’d like to hear more about Make & Print specifically but aren’t ready to book just yet sign up to our mailing list.
This month I’ve set up some new places to find out about our market on the web.
We now have a Facebook page. Our Facebook group is still there and full of lovely discussions but we wanted somewhere to easily share our markets and stallholders work with fans, plus find some new fans along the way.
We also have Instagram. We’ll be using this to post pics of our market days and share brilliant work by our stallholders.
Come and say hello.
It’s been a gloriously sunny week, Summer is here. Here are some photos from our last few markets, the Grainger Market’s looking smart in this beautiful weather.
Our market goes from strength to strength thanks to our fantastic stallholders and wonderful customers. I’d like to say a big thank you to everybody who’s been to the market this year. It’s been lovely. Hope you’ll join us again in 2015 for a great set of markets. First Saturday of the month in the Grainger Market, starting in February.
Here’s some photos from our September market to give you an idea of what to expect from us next year. We’re always finding new stallholders so there’s plenty of surprises in store too.
We had a fantastic time last Saturday. Joining in with the Grainger Market’s October Festival, 1950’s themed celebrations. It might have been a little cold for some of our dresses but we had a grand time all the same. We love a good excuse to dress up.
Did you take some photos at our market? We’d love you to share them.
As if that bit of excitement wasn’t enough we got a wonderful write up on F6.Studios blog for our October event and a lovely piece in November’s The Crack, giving readers a run down of our upcoming markets and our wonderful stallholders.
What’s that? Upcoming markets?
Why yes. Our Christmas market is the next up and final for this year, on Saturday 14th December at the Star and Shadow Cinema. Our next few blog posts will be introducing you to some of the wonderfully talented stallholders joining us for this year’s Christmas shindig. So, keep your eyes peeled. If you’re the Facebook type we have an event set up, please join and invite your gang. There’ll be festive tunes (and not so festive ones too to keep it interesting) and mince pies to warm you through. See you there folks.
We had a very welcome guest at our April market, the sunshine. Winter was full of good times but I don’t think any of us are sad to see the back of it.
