Knutsford Market Hall have been specially commended by
National Association of British Markets Authorities (NABMA) for their
contribution to its annual Love your Local Market campaign.
Love your Local
Market started on 17th May and lasted for two weeks. During this time Knutsford Market Hall hosted
Egerton School Choir, a Face Painter, Competitions and had a ‘sample’ day
offering visitors to the town a taste of all the products the market
offers. There was also a strong social
media campaign across Twitter and Facebook.
All traders took part in the campaign.
NABMA gave special praise to Knutsford Market Hall for its strong
participation nationally for LYLM with specific mention for photography (Tatton
Photography) and trader engagement (The Market Café). The market overall topped the list of special
mentions nationally for its campaign as well.
Town Centre Manager, said, “Everyone at The Market Hall was really pleased with
the way the campaign went this year. It
has been great to see new faces in the market and our different mix of
stalls. We hope people are realising
what a gem the Market is. We host supper clubs, quiz nights and take part in
community events all year round. If you
work elsewhere and don’t have time to pop in all our traders are on our website
and can be contacted for pre-orders and in many cases delivery. We love our
LYLM mugs as well!
Hall is open every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to 4pm. The
Market Café also open on Wednesday. Shoppers at Knutsford Market can find
everything for dinner from, fruit and veg, wine and a great range of meat,
poultry and fish. There is a café and
you can buy women’s and children’s clothing and accessories and gifts. There is also a stall offering a weigh and
save and eco products. Alongside this is a photography stall offering a full
range of both consumer and corporate photography services.
Knutsford Market Hall will be celebrating Love your Local Market Week which starts this Thursday 17th May and runs for two weeks.
Knutsford Market Hall will launch the fortnight with ‘Taste Thursday’ on 17th May. Visitors to Knutsford, residents and businesses will be able to enjoy samples from many of the traders: Alan’s Fruit and Veg, Edwards & Emmess Butchers, Morgan Edwards Fine Wines, The Market Café and Mike’s Poultry and Provisions. Style Loft Boutique and Dave’s Balloons and Greeting cards will also be offering discounts for shoppers.
There will be a surprise or two over the Royal Wedding weekend with maybe even a “Royal visitor” or two.
The following week there will be envelopes hidden around Knutsford containing a voucher from the market hall. This voucher can then be redeemed for a variety of goods; a punnet of strawberries, a greeting card, cappuccino or even a chicken! Shoppers are asked to keep their eyes peeled at all times! A children’s face painter will be in residence on Saturday 26th May. So, if you are shopping in the market that day with children, you know they will be kept amused. Sandra Curties, Town Centre Manager, said “Knutsford Market Hall is looking forward to Love your Local Market Week. Whether you are a regular market shopper or not visited before, please come and say hello. The Market Hall is a hidden gem within Knutsford brimming with local produce and a customer service ethos that is second to none.”
