    Hi Sarah,
    I’ve recently started a handmade clothing shop and am currently trading online.
    I would like to join the village markets but am not sure if I will be able to have enough stock for the 3×3 m space.

    I don’t know anyone that wants to share a stall. Do you ever match together applicants that are both wanting to share a stall?

    THanks,

    Sophie.

      Hi Sophie. Thanks for your message. Whilst we don’t permit shared stalls we can certainly keep you in mind should anyone else enquire (both brands are required to pay the stall fee each). Sarah

    Hi, regarding the pop up shop.. I have a kids label called between us and have been selling it in another shop that has recently closed. I have stock I want to sell ASAP.
    Can I be classed under a Pop u shop?

      Hi Stacey, if it is your own kids label then it would be classified as a designer stall. If it’s not your own label then you can apply for a pop-up shop and we will assess it then, to see if it is suitable. Thank you 🙂

    Hi guys, I am wanting to hold a stall for a party supply kit that I have produced, it contains mostly hand made reuseable eco friendly contents and are really funky and new, nothing that I have seen anywhere else. Because I am starting out would like to see how the people at TVM like it. Let me know if this is something I can do. Cheers Natalie 🙂

    Our business interest is in boutique chocolates (not made by us) that can be purchased and eaten on the go. Is there availability for a product like ours as we noticed that there aren’t any ‘food’ stalls available at the moment?
