Nantwich market traders campaign

Nantwich Market traders have joined thousands of others around the country to unite as part of the “Love Your Local Market Campaign”.

The campaign, led by the National Association of British Market Authorities, aims to attract new visitors and shoppers to the market and celebrate the important part they play in the local community.

From today (Tuesday May 14), they will be showcasing their stalls and products on offer, alongside a number of events and activities, over the next two weeks.

It starts today with a charity book sale, followed with live music and balloon modelling on Saturday May 18.

Visitors to the market can also expect to find prize colouring and photography competitions, a scavenger hunt, give-aways and more.

A Nantwich Town Council spokesperson said: “Our market is a crucial part of Nantwich’s history and also its future.

“We want to celebrate our market, which still remains a major attraction to visitors.

“The variety of traders, and products on offer is a reminder that markets are a great place to go shopping, but also their importance to the local community.”

  1. @JCD. I agree. There is a massive opportunity here to really get that fantastic community facility working. A number of shops in there feel like space fillers to me, marking time until they run out of customers. There is quite a big churn.

    Look at what Altrincham market has achieved – similar size premises and although the demographic of Nantwich and Altrincham aren’t the same, there is opportunity here. Food vendors, tap room, restaurant + the outside space as well.

    Nantwich TC would benefit from a chat with Altrincham to develop a better plan for the facility. Once the last 3-4 food vendors go, what will replace them? More bric-a-brac?

  2. The market news to reflect the growing population of Nantwich and surrounding area. It is stuck in a bygone era which attracts a certain demographic doing what it’s always done. If it wants to attract new customers then it needs to consider how it can attract new customers and to get them spend money. It’s nice to promote the “love your market” strap line but frankly it needs to be more relevant and given the demise of many retail outlets it has opportunities to do so

  3. Use it or lose it. We’ve seen a lot of that recently with well established businesses closing their doors in the town.
    The town has grown in resident numbers year on year.
    This message is start your shopping in the town centre, if you can’t find it there top up in one of the edge of town stores.
    You moved here because it was nice, will you complain and move out when everything’s shut down… ?
