11 Jul Greenwich Markets offer for Mumpreneurs
Greenwich Market & Greenwichmums.com team up to offer local mummy micro-businesses a days free trading, as part of Love Your Local Market 2013
Greenwich Market have invited talented local mumpreneurs, all members of local website Greenwichmums.com, to a days free trading on Wednesday 24 July. Ten lucky Mums will be able to try their hand at trading on the market for one day for free. The brief is to bring items to sell that are handmade and follow the independent designer maker ethos that Greenwich Market is so well known for. Greenwich Market, a registered LYLM2013 market, wanted to work with the initiative to encourage local people to sell locally created products. Ben Niblett, Market Manager explained, “We realised that working with Greenwichmums.com would enable us to reach a group of people who are truly local and who might be interested in taking first steps to set up their own businesses. We are also advising them on how to display their merchandise and how best to run their stall.”
The Greenwich Mums are an enterprising lot. Activities on the day will include Pop Up Yoga and Bespoke Children’s Crafts on the Market Green as well as stalls showcasing crafts including photography, graphics, vintage style handmade clothes, candle making, children’s cushions, children’s reversible dresses and even holistic massages. For foodies there is French food to go and handmade chocolates. Rebecca Thomson of Greenwichmums.com says, “We love supporting local business, and seeing some of our micro-businesses take that first step on the road towards a possible shop in the heart of Greenwich is a very exciting development. The day’s going to be lots of fun and seeing these businesses grow will be the icing on the cake.”
Several of the stalls will also be offering younger visitors to the market the chance to make things for themselves as 24 July is also the first day of Greenwich Market Crafty Wednesdays – which will run weekly to the end of the summer. If the Greenwichmums stalls are a success they will be invited to come back every Wednesday over the summer. Please do make sure you join in the fun and Love Your Local Market!
