Sneinton Market is the oldest market in Nottingham, lets be frank, its been a hard slog to get the Market to a viable state. Markets are like a DNA double Helix, Customers on one spiral, traders on the other, you have to get both going in an upwards direction for a market to survive.
I’m glad to say that we are getting there, we now have a core of traders, that we actually can say is a market. Yes I know, you can remember it when there was 60+ stalls and thousands of people. But when asked, when did you last come down to the market, a lot of people say… oooh it must be 10 years – and there is your answer. If people don’t come to the market and buy things we won’t get traders, because they are there to make money.
So if you want a market and an area where the Community can stage their own events, get down to the market, change your shopping habits, choose your local market first, before nipping in your car to some multi national supermarket, we have urban food markets where the food is locally produced, is organically grown by local people. Lets keep it local.
We normally have special events at least once per month, so if you want to check what’s going on check out the web site at www.sneintonmarket.co.uk
See you down at the market, down Hockley!
