Vintage + Craft Market (Urmston, Manchester)

Commercial, Personal

Last weekend I popped along to my local market to take a few pics as I was really excited by its new Vintage & Crafts market – and I wasn’t disappointed, it was great!

Urmston Market has been there for 80 years – the fruit and veg family business has been there for 80 years, and lots of other people have been trading there for at least 35 years. My lovely community-minded friend Caroline (who incidentally is an amazing designer – check her out!) recently decided to try to drum up more activity at the market by working with existing and new market traders to initiate a series of events and speciality market days… The intention is that these will drive a reconnection with the community and remind people that markets can offer what chain stores and supermarkets can’t. It’s been such a success already and they are a real pleasure to visit. When I went along, the markets were buzzing and there was so much lovely stuff for sale… between taking photos I ‘somehow’ managed to end up coming home with a cushion, greeting cards, flowers and some jewellery…

Have a look for yourselves! The markets are open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. The speciality markets run 9am-4pm on selected Saturdays and feature specialist market stalls alongside all the usual stalls – the Vintage & Crafts market is already up and running, and the Artisan foods & delicatessen crafts market will launch next month!

VINTAGE & CRAFT MARKET – every last Saturday of the month
ARTISAN MARKET – every first Saturday of the month (starts May 3rd)

Also next weekend on Saturday 12th April is the URMSTON MARKET SPRING FAIR! As well as all the usual stalls, there will also be lots of amazing food, live music and kids’ activities. Get yourselves down there!

Keep up to date with all the markets, events and traders on the Urmston Market Facebook page, and if you’re interested in trading at the Market, please get in touch with either the market office on 0161 747 9847 / 07739 171211 or by emailing Caroline at caroline@dottodotdesign.info

In the meantime, check out all the goodies from last Saturday’s Vintage & Crafts Market. If you like the look of them, make sure you head down to the next one!Vintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 087_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 001_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 003_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 016_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 007_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 008_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 011_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 025_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 020_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 040_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 046_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 006_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 023_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 022_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 018_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 012_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 026_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 027_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 028_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 030_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 035_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 036_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 037_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 033_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 041_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 042_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 049_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 051_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 053_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 057_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 055_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 058_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 061_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 084_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 065_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 083_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 069_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 081_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 070_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 072_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 071_STOMPED.jpgVintage Craft Market Urmston Manchester 077_STOMPED.jpg
