The Grosmont Market team have met to discuss the 2020 markets, and we are very much looking forward to the up and coming markets throughout 2020. The next market will be the spring market, which will be on the 14th March. If you would like to be considered for a pitch, please reply to this email by 7th Feb.
As a market, we are committed to ensuring that we stay true to our values and ethos – a core part of which is ensuring that the plastic and waste footprint of the market is minimal. At the end of each market, we are throwing away on average at least two large bin bags full of rubbish, the majority of which is plastic plates, cutlery, cups, cartons etc.
We appreciate that for many of the stall holders often the cheapest and most convenient way to serve food or present your products is in plastic. However, going forward, we would really like to encourage all stall holders to make the steps to go plastic free. For future Grosmont markets we will be selecting stalls on their ability to be making the steps to be plastic free. We appreciate that this may add a cost to you but we plan to keep our pitch fee low to offset some of this cost.
All the very best
The Grosmont market team
