June 22, 2012 Bideford Town Council
Bideford Pannier Market is marking the NABMA ‘Love your Market Fortnight’ which runs from 23rd June to 8th July with two special events.
On National Market Day, Saturday 23rd June, they are holding an Arts, Crafts and Collectables Market in conjunction with their traditional market which they hope to make a monthly event. Then on Saturday 30th June (which is also Heritage Day in Bideford) they are holding a Pirate Day with a fancy dress competition, Captain Blood, and pirate workshops for the children where they can make things like eye patches and pieces of eight.
The initiative was inspired by Mary Portas and supported by the Markets Alliance and the aim is to get 200 markets taking part. It is hoped that ‘Love Your Market Fortnight’ will be a starting point for new entrepreneurs across the Country and help to revitalise local markets. The National Market Traders Federation are offering free liability insurance for all new traders during that fortnight to encourage new people to give market trading a go. So the cost of a stall for one day at Bideford will be just £5 on a Tuesday or £10 on a Saturday, charities get their first stall free and monthly rates are from £35.
As Mary Portas said in her report in December 2011: “On a market stall people can try out their ideas and get their business booming without too much cost. It’s great for our town centres too, bringing in fresh ideas and products, and preserving our nation’s cultural heritage.”
For further details on the Pannier Market at Bideford or to book a stall please ring Richard or Claire on 01237 428817/8 or email Bideford Town Council on email@example.com
