WHAT THE TRADERS SAY


“St. Catherine’s Market is a big market in a little town. With the farmer’s market, the independent market and the antiques we always get a good crowd” – The Dog Bakery


It’s still the best source of vintage finds for miles


Who can resist the retro charm of Lucille?


“It’s our first year with a stall here; we’ve been coming to the market for years and wanted to get our own bakery recognised - there’s a great atmosphere here!” – Lievito Bakery


“We’ve had the stall since the market started two years ago. We sell different cheeses for different seasons: cranberry for Christmas, spring onion for summer salads, etc. Customers can try out the cheeses as they go by. We get through a lot of cheese!” – Batch House Cheeses


“We’re at every market, every year and we’ve got a permanent stall right in the middle of the square – there’s a loyal customer base, and people seek us out” – Unusual Meat Pie Company


“THE ORGANISERS WANT THE MARKET TO BE ALMOST A MINI-MONTHLY FESTIVAL RATHER THAN JUST A REGULAR RETAIL FIX”


“I love doing markets - it’s the most honest way of making a living, when the customer knows they’re buying exactly what I’m making. I like to keep my prices as low as I can - I want to sell to everyone, not just the highest bidders” – Handmade Cider
