First there were 19 stalls, then 28 and now this Sunday’s super community market has become such so popular that it has taken over Marlborough town hall and will have a total of 40 stalls.
The markets’ booming business is due to a combination of stallholders seeking out a high quality venue with enticing prospects and the “feel good factor” encouraging the public to support a community rather than commercial event.
That’s why the town hall has been specially hired to house an Affordable Arts and Crafts Fair while, under the marquees outside in the High Street, 30 stalls will be offering fresh local produce and other goodies in the farmers’ market.
“And it is also partly due to our very effective website, which a supporter donated to us, and means that we can reach many more stallholders who want to come to a wonderful town like Marlborough,” market organiser Ellie Gill (pictured) told Marlborough News Online.
“There has been tremendous public support and goodwill too because it is a community market. People do enjoy the enormous variety of fresh food, helpful local services and arts and crafts that we have been putting on display.”
