Visit Independent Street to champion indie shopping with us.

Independent businesses are the backbone of the UK economy, but are struggling to compete with multi-nationals, especially in the aftermath of Covid and the ever-rising cost of living.

Here at Pedddle, we champion those small, creative, independent businesses – as do the market organisers that we work with.

Independent Street organise excellent markets in Cheshire and beyond, supporting a wide variety of small, creative and independent businesses – so we wanted to explore everything that’s brilliant about them!
