Local traders are being given the opportunity to take part in this summer’s Carlisle International Market.
The open-air market is set to return to Carlisle city centre between Thursday 27 and Monday 31 August.
The event is organised by Market Place Europe.
Stalls are available for traders that would like to join the market. To find out the costs and what documentation is needed, contact Market Place Europe by emailing [email protected] or calling 0161 478 6060.
The market will be held following the lifting of restrictions by the government which now allows outdoor markets to re-open.
There will be changes to how the market operates to keep shoppers and traders safe.
Hand sanitisers will be available for customers in addition to the hand sanitiser stations installed in Carlisle city centre. Customers will be encouraged to make cashless payments.
Shoppers will be spoilt for choice with a huge mix of authentic continental treats in the city centre. Stalls will be open between:
- Thursday 27 August: 9am – 6pm.
- Friday 28 August: 9am – 6pm.
- Saturday 29 August: 9am – 6pm.
- Sunday 30 August: 10am – 5pm.
- Bank Holiday Monday: 10am – 5pm.
An ancient Proclamation will be recited from the top of the steps of the Old Town Hall on Saturday, 29 August at 10am. The Proclamation is a declaration of Carlisle City Council’s right to hold an annual Fair in August, originally granted to the citizens of Carlisle in 1352 by Edward III.
Also in the city centre on the first Saturday of each month is the Carlisle Farmers and Producers’ Market. At the market they showcase the very best the local area has to offer. Everything is grown, reared, produced or crafted by the stallholders themselves and gives customers the opportunity to find out more about the food and products they buy directly from source whilst supporting local businesses. The market is run by Sustainable Brampton and they welcome local traders to apply for a stall if they have ‘home grown’ products they think fits the bill by contacting [email protected]
