Marlow’s brand new market – coming 25th May!

| |

A new market is to open in Marlow!

The indoor market, organised by Transition Town Marlow (TTM), will be a hub for local producers, service providers and customers. It will provide a supportive space for new local producers and service providers to get started, and it will also provide local customers with a good deal.

The market aims to help Marlow be more self-sufficient by providing a place for individuals and larger suppliers to sell their produce using minimum food miles. TTM member Liz Lorente said, ‘ Food is always a common area of interest and as 40% of greenhouse gases come from food distribution and production, it makes sense to have a local food market.’ The market will also bolster Marlow’ s economy as money raised from sales will stay in the community.

TTM member Julia Lockwood said, “It’ s a very exciting project. We aim to get a good mixture of stall-holders, from established food producers to individuals selling home-made jams and cakes. We also welcome artists and craftspeople, and encourage people offering services such as bike repair to take a pitch. The idea is that anyone can set up a stall if they are selling genuine local produce or offering local services.”

In support of Marlow Town Council’ s initiative, the market aims to be plastic-bag free. TTM will run a cafe at the market for refreshments. The first market will be held at Liston Hall, Chapel Street, on Saturday 25 May, and then on the last Saturday of every month.

  1. This page on your website that I am looking at seems to be a year old, so I hope this message reaches you. How does one apply for a pitch at the Market, please? I produce hand crafted jewellery. I live in High Wycombe, but a Marlow friend suggested the Market might be a good place to be. Thanks.
