Global Collaboration Week commences on 22nd September, so in the spirit of collaboration, we wanted to get markets and stallholders all over the UK (and Europe!) collaborating at our next online extravaganza on the 26th! Introducing The Creative Collaboration Market…
We need to work together to get everyone shopping locally and supporting small, independent businesses across the UK and beyond.
We’ve therefore got 16 fantastic markets and many makers to support our cause! Similar to our last online event, on Saturday 26th September you’ll be able to click Pedddle’s map, discover markets and stallholders near to where you live and shop from them. You can find out more about the in-person events each market organiser runs and which stallholders are based near you, to shop locally and independently in future too!
If you’d like to become a stallholder selling at one of these markets during The Creative Collaboration Market, you can find details on how to apply below.
