A new street market is coming to North Harrow in March and an appeal for stallholders has been issued by Harrow Council.
The town centre manager is appealing for entrepreneurs, businesses or residents who want to sell their wares to get in touch. From florists to furniture sellers, artists to jewellery makers, anyone is welcome with stalls provided for free.
The market will be staged on the weekend of 10th March and if successful, could become a regular new feature in the shopping district. There will be music and dance from schools and community groups over the weekend.
The trial market is the latest in the Council’s package of business support for North Harrow, funded by a successful bid to the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund. Since early 2010, the Council, traders and wider community have been working together to help revitalise the area.
Rachel Jenman, town centre manager for North Harrow, said:
“North Harrow has lots to offer with great shops, restaurants and cafes and a street market is a way of encouraging more residents to visit and spend in the area.
“We want a huge range of stallholders, from existing businesses to fledgling arts and crafts makers to come and sell their products.
“North Harrow has turned a corner in the last few months, with new businesses opening and events for the whole community creating a real buzz.
“The market is part of a continuing programme to encourage more residents to shop local and support North Harrow traders.”
