This year is set to be even better with new traders joining us along with old favourites returning’ says Suzannah.

The Market was originally started as a pilot in 2012 to help with the dispersal of Anti-Social Behaviour in the area and to help increase the footfall in Castle Circus. Unfortunately resources to keep the market going ran out and that’s when Suzannah stepped in to voluntarily keep it running. Along with the help of the area’s Councillor’s, Staff within the Council and Karyn this has been achieved.

‘I’m passionate about this area of Town’ Suzannah says ‘It has so much potential and the area outside of the Town Hall is a beautiful setting for a Market and other events, its very under used and that’s a shame, we hope to change this.’

The Market now runs every Thursday 10 – 4 also the odd Saturday and includes a Quality Butcher, Sweets & Donuts, Gourmet Burgers and Hotdogs along with other Craft, Jewellery and Clothing Stalls, with new stalls attending weekly.

‘I love trading at the Market in Castle Circus’ says Karyn Laing of Kaz Colours ‘ We have a good bunch of traders here that all want to see Castle Circus becoming family friendly once again. It has a great atmosphere.’

Not to stop there, Suzannah and Karyn are planning indoor Preloved and Craft Markets to take place in the Assembly Rooms at the Town Hall. These will be every Quarter with the first being held in June 2014.
