Pop-Up Markets

Pop-Up Markets / When they are being held this year / How to book a stall space

Our district centre has suffered following the 2017 explosion which took out several shops; and businesses have been unable to reopen.  Our pop-up markets are designed to give local people who have started their own fledgling businesses but who don't have a premises to trade from to come to our precinct and offer their wares to our residents and potential visitors to the town.

We aim to hold 4 events per year.  The markets are open to anyone who has a fledgling business, and who has their own public liability insurance (evidence must be provided when applying for a pitch space).  Anyone who prepares/cooks any food items that they sell must provide evidence of their food hygiene safety rating which they have been awarded by their local authority.  Please note that we have a pitch space charge, and also ask for a refundable deposit which is returned to you if you turn up on the day.  We supply only the space in the street for your stall; we do not supply gazebos or tables - you will need to bring your own.  If the weather is expected to be windy on the day, we have a contingency plan which allows us to use an adjacent building where the market can be held indoors.

The markets in 2020 will be held on the following days:

  • Saturday 18th April 2020 (Easter pop-up market)
  • Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July 2020 (New Ferry Festival)
  • Saturday 12th September 2020 (Autumn Pop-Up Market)
  • Saturday 12th December 2020 (Christmas Pop-Up Market)

Businesses who want to come to our markets should send an email to newferrymarkets@gmail.com and request an application form.
