Title: Pub market
Post by: Andy on October 23, 2012, 12:19:23 PM
Been so snowed under that I completely forgot to tell you about this!

I've organised a pub market near home (Chiswick), it's the first of the kind in this neighbourhood, it got filled up with exhibitors pretty quickly and I managed to get some cover on local news too!

Pretty chuffed, but getting very nervous as the first one approaches!

Here's the FB event page for those who want a nosy...

What a fab idea, it's a shame I don't live near otherwise I would love to go. Food, Shopping & drink all in one place, right up my street.

Thank you, Jojo, and you can organise one too!  :D

I actually went there to approach the lady about making beer soap as they're about to start brewing their own beer.

Pub markets are becoming popular, it has to be in a big, appropriate pub, but it's indoors which is great for this time of year!

Sounds like a great idea, you will have to let us know how it goes.

Thanks and thanks!

The pub landlady is lovely, very easy to deal with. The most difficult part was dealing with exhibitors, one finds very odd people out there!...

And the worst are the last minute cancellations - though they were not a problem at all, as I have a long waiting list of people wanting a table as there is no markets at all around Chiswick (bizarrely enough).
