Market Boost for Saltash
On the first Saturday of the month, Saltash will be joining in the with the high profile, Love Your Local Market campaign led by the National Association of British Market Authorities, with full support from the wider markets industry and government. Organised and promoted by Aaron Monk of “Diverse Events” and backed by “Saltash Town Improvement Group (STIG)”
These markets are set to bring in a much needed boost of footfall to the town, where many independent shops have been struggling.
Aaron said, “We hope that the #LoveSaltash markets will help bring people back into Saltash Fore Street and Keast Mews. There are such a variety of shops in Saltash and with free parking on Saturdays it’s a fantastic place to shop. If every adult in Saltash spent just £5.00 per week in their local independent shops, instead of online or at the big supermarkets it would be worth an extra £3.2 million per year going to the local Saltash economy”
The free to the public market will be located in Wesley Road, opposite the unique talking Ann Glanville statue in Saltash. Aaron said that more stallholders are welcome for only £25.00.
Don’t miss out on the #LoveSaltash Markets, happening on the first Saturday of each month till the end of the year, this includes a special market for the Saltash Christmas Lights Switch-on which last year saw over 4,000 people take to the streets of Saltash.

|Brilliant idea, I really hope this is supported by the local traders and takes off as markets do attract visitors from neighbouring villages too.||Posted on Sat 13/09/14 06:13 PM|
|You can book a space at the market via www.diverse-events.com ||Posted on Tue 16/09/14 03:39 PM|
|Does this mean Wesley Road will be closed off for the day? I think it's a great idea as long as you haven't got cars trying to drive down the middle of the market. What kind of market traders will be there? ||Posted on Sat 20/09/14 10:03 AM|
|Wesley Road will be closed to vehicles but open to pedestrians as that is where the market will be. Diversion signs will be in place ||Posted on Tue 23/09/14 04:22 PM|
|Hopefully it will gain the support it needs in the very short period of time. If it doesn't, it won't be back after Christmas!
Wesley Road has a road closure and diversion in place for the day of the market. No cars will be driving down the road!
We currently have fresh produce. Some quality, quirky and tasty beers. Some stylish ceramic products. Fashionable baby clothing and even a traveling haberdashery shop!

|Well done to Aaron for organising the markets, i hope they receive the support they deserve! ||Posted on Wed 24/09/14 08:29 PM|
|The market is this Saturday with some great stalls. Please all share this with your customers, friends and family. If the market works it could potentially bring lots of new visitors into the town ||Posted on Tue 30/09/14 07:26 PM|
|Will this be continuing after Christmas and becoming regular?||Posted on Fri 03/10/14 12:14 PM|
|If it is a success then yes, if it's a failure than no. If you would like to see it continued, come out and support :-).... Aaron, Diverse Events||Posted on Sun 05/10/14 08:29 AM|
|I visited the market yesterday and was very pleased to see many local faces supporting the traders. I loved the variety of the stalls with some really unique items for sale like the wooden cheese boards. If this grows it can only be an asset to the town. ||Posted on Sun 05/10/14 01:38 PM|
|I have to say with regard to the market that I thought it added a nice atmosphere to the town too with the live music and the traders and shoppers chatting. I was also surprised to see the amount of people who walked over from St Budeaux to visit the town on Saturday. Well done Aaron. ||Posted on Tue 07/10/14 11:16 AM|
|Can I suggest that the next market is advertised more? Perhaps posters in shop windows? I didn't have a clue it was happening. ||Posted on Sat 11/10/14 07:39 PM|
|Are the markets continuing after Christmas? It would be good for the town if we had a regular artisan type street market ||Posted on Wed 05/11/14 11:18 AM|
|That depends if Cornwall County Council revoke the ban on Markets in Saltash.||Posted on Fri 05/06/15 09:32 AM|
