Worker Bee Markets

Worker Bee Markets

The Worker Bee Market is a curated artisan marketplace, the first of which will pop up round the corner from Bramall Hall on Sunday 15 April 2018.

40 contemporary designer makers and producers will descend on the 3rd Bramhall Scout Hut, Linney Road for a brand new market in the heart of the North Bramhall Community, celebrating independent producers and makers, many of them local to the area. The Scout Hut will be open for teas and coffees with seating and indoor as well as outdoor stalls.

The Worker Bee Market presents an exceptional selection of artwork, cakes and sweet treats, streetfood and cooking ingredients, flowers, jewellery, ceramics, food, glassware, textiles and homeware from talented, passionate designers and makers. You can even grab a glass of fizz, shop organic fruit and veg, fantastic cheeses and fresh bread as well as enjoy lunch. 

Shoppers and traders will be joined by Councillor Linda Holt, Mayor of Stockport and the Help4Heroes Bear. Any local Community Groups or Charities wanting a free stall should contact the market direct.

Local makers have been sought out for this Market. Lemon Drizzle Tea & Cakes, Chameleon Glass and Sherbet Lemon Ceramic Art are from Bramhall. Inia Designs is in Davenport and another six traders are from the Stockport area, with two picture artists often taking Stockport as inspiration for their work.

Curators Jackie Crozier and Clare Simpson are professionals in Event Planning and Market Trading, as well as Marketing and Social Media. Their mission is to bring Artisan Makers and Producers to local communities, making it easier for people to shop local rather than expecting people to travel. The location means it’s easy to walk across the fields to the Worker Bee Market from Cheadle Hulme, Bramhall and Ladybridge Road. You can also add to your day out at Bramall Hall by visiting the market too. 

They plan to find other communities who want to support local businesses too.
