In Granby: The Street Market returns

This Saturday, 2nd April, sees the return of Granby 4 Streets Market. Now in its seventh year, the market this year moves out onto its new home on Granby Street itself.

We’re expecting Ducie Street, the last of the 4 Streets to go on site, to do so some time this summer.

So we’re moving out onto Granby’s historic trading street, as our direct tribute to the heritage of the area, where the whole of Granby Street was filled with shops, from Princes Avenue through to Upper Parliament Street. Public consultation we had done last year through Writing on the Wall came back strongly with the message of how much the shops are missed. So each month now we’ll be adding the Street Market in to the offers from our friends, the shop owners who’ve continued to trade on Granby Street.

Including recent ventures like the wonderful Baby Dolls.

The Street Market will just be here at the Princes Avenue end of Granby Street.

And this end of the street will be closed to traffic while the Market’s on.

So come and visit this Saturday.

For crafts, art, wonderful foods and, well, for Granby.

This has been a wonderful past year for us of finally getting so much done and so many formerly empty homes already being lived in. There’s still lots to do but the place is buzzing with the energy of it’s future now. So come and celebrate Granby with us all.

This will be the first Street Market since we were part of winning the Turner Prize for the way we’ve all done this, so come and celebrate – and also have a look round.

Our Community Land Trust houses are well on now.
