The day has arrived!
Today (30th March 2017) is the start of the Pop Up Shop season at Dalegate Market, which runs until the end of October. Throughout the seven months, Dalegate Market welcomes a whole host of artisans and producers with all manner of products.
There are four beach huts, open each Thursday until the following Tuesday. On Wednesdays Dalegate Market waves goodbye to the last week’s artisans and welcomes four new artisans.
“Changing the pop up shops weekly keeps the place fresh and interesting. We have our permanent shops and Deepdale Café, who are open all year, and the pop up shops add an extra element of interest to the site.” said Jason Borthwick, who owns Dalegate Market with his father Alister Borthwick.
“Estelle and I work hard to find an interesting and varied mix of artisans and producers to join the permanent shops. Each year we see regulars returning and new businesses joining in the mix. The pop up shops are a great way for artisans and producers to test the market, have a temporary outlet and meet other businesses to learn from and cooperatively work with.”
Hire of the pop up shops starts at £50 for six days, making it a very cost effective way for businesses to reach customers. With the renewed relationship and improvements at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping next door, it’s also very easy for artisans and producers from further afield to sell on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.
Dalegate Market and their neighbours Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are developing an ever growing programme of events, including markets, music nights and food specials in the café, bringing a wider audience to the artisans and producers in the site.
