Specialist markets coming to town

More markets coming to Sittingbourne
A new range of specialist and themed markets will be coming to Sittingbourne town centre from August.

Following the phenomenal success of the Sittingbourne artisan market, Swale Borough Council and the Market Co-operative are looking to introduce a range of new specialist and themed markets to the town centre from August 2017.

The themed markets will complement the existing monthly artisan market which currently runs on the second Saturday of the month from March to December.

Cllr Mike Cosgrove, cabinet member for regeneration at the council, said:

“Traders and shoppers have really supported the Saturday artisan market, and the feedback we’ve had from them shows a real appetite for more.

“By introducing the new themed markets, we can build on the success we’ve had so far, and offer residents and visitors a new shopping experience in the heart of the town centre.”

The new markets will be held on the fourth Saturday of each month from August to December, and run from 10.00 am until 2.00 pm at the top of the High Street.

Starting with the Sittingbourne Food Festival in August, a range of markets is being prepared, which include:

September – Simply Vintage
October – Baby Grows
November – Shop Local
December – Christmas Market
