ROCHESTER CITY MARKET

market flower power, marion haslam

We want talented makers, bakers and collectors to take part in our new market.

Not strictly a Hometown project, although I am one of the 3 musketeers helping to organise this new monthly event. The market is held on the High Street on the second Saturday of each month. Stalls are available for artisans, small scale food producers/makers and traders of vintage clothes and collectables. If you are interested in taking a space, the cost is £30 per day, including a gazebo. For an info pack containing all you need to know, please email rochestercitymarket@outlook.com . The dates for the rest of the year are 12 Aug, 9 Sept, 14 Oct, 11 Nov and 9 Dec. Once stall holders' applications are approved, you are free to book one, two or all the markets. Plus we also want you as a customer at the market, so put the dates in your diaries and support these small businesses, by shopping small and shopping local.

Each week we put together selections of 10 coordinating fat quarters from the 1700 fabrics we have in store. Each pack contains 2.5 metres of fabric, ideal for the centre of a quilt. And the extra bit of good news? You save 10% on the price of buying them individually. (We appreciate that Mavis is holding more than 10 fat quarters in this photo above, but it's such a lovely image...)
