Worker Bee Markets are run by a seasoned market trader with over 20 years experience of marketing and organising events. In 2018, I saw a gap for a new market organiser, one who wants to help serve local communities with the best artisan and local produce stalls, whilst giving traders the best opportunities to showcase and sell quality handmade goods. I will always prioritise maker/traders as I want our customers to meet the maker where possible.
I keep stall costs low, market my socks off to ensure the biggest footfall possible and make sure there is as little crossover of product as is possible, given the interest from traders. I consider environmental issues wherever we can.
As a relatively new market, I have been doing a lot of leg work to make it a success for traders and communities. I am out with my team putting leaflets through doors, putting up banners, signs and posters. I am populating and promoting on social media and sending out PR messages to local media and bloggers (with a lot of success). I’m talking to local communities, MPs and Councillors to engage them and am offering free stalls to community groups and local charities. I also pay for advertising as and when possible.
I run regular (bi-monthly) markets on the third Sunday of the month, starting in March in Bramhall (March, May, July, September, November) and Heald Green (April will be Easter MONDAY, June, August, October, December)
I also run regular (bi-monthly) markets on the final Saturday of the month in Gatley (March, May, July, September)
I am also constantly talking to other local communities in the Cheshire and South Manchester area about regular markets and Pop-Up Markets. Click here to see confirmed events in Cheadle Hulme, Marple Bridge, Hazel Grove, Bramhall Village, Reddish, Didsbury and Salford Quays.
