TROWBRIDGE town centre will be full of stalls run by local people on Saturday, as the town's new Weavers Market returns for its second opening.

The independent market returns to Fore Street, Market Street and the Town Hall between 10am and 3pm. The organisers have made some changes, with more stalls and a better staging area and more space to appreciate the free live music which is part of the event.

Once again, the Trowbridge Weavers Market will offer a wide range of unique hand-made products and delicious food and drink. One key aspect of the day is that Market Street will be closed to traffic, leaving people free to wander the stalls, enjoy the food and music, discover the town centre and have fun as part of the community.

Despite a quick turnaround, the volunteers behind the market have been hard at work to make this month’s event even better than July’s hugely popular launch. According to one member of the group: “We had so many positive comments from our first event so we are delighted with how it went. The most common pieces of feedback were how fun and friendly the day was, how great our traders and stewards were, and that it was just what the town centre needs.

"However, we want the market to keep getting better so we’re working on finding even more traders, adding even more variety and on a number of other improvements based on the public’s feedback. For example, people loved the live music but wanted a better stage and a more obvious place from where they could enjoy it - so we’ve adjusted the layout to do just that. It should give August’s market a great festival feel and you’ll see other big improvements every month.”

The organisers also continue to co-ordinate the market with other local events so there is always lots to do in the town on the day. On Saturday Drawing Projects UK, based in Bridge House, will be hosting the first of a fascinating series of Makers Talks, with acclaimed British designer Michael Angove.

To keep the youngsters happy, Active Trowbridge will once again have a collection of inflatables in Trowbridge Park. The market team then have more partner events planned for September, October and beyond.

“We’re so pleased with July but the challenge is now to keep up the momentum and to keep improving," the spokesman said. "We’ve had great support from so many people, from both Wiltshire and Trowbridge Councils, various local groups and businesses, our traders and, of course, the brilliant local community. We are only a small team but we’re showing what can be done when people join in and come together. So please come along on Saturday and be a part of it!”

The market will then be back in September and October, on the second Saturday of each month.
