We launched a third street market last weekend in the busy community of Morriston, and judging by it’s attendance and popularity, it looks as though Morriston Market will follow the success of our Uplands and Marina markets!
After the event, which was officially opened by Morriston Labour Councillors Rob Stewart, Yvonne Jardine, Ceri Evans and Andrea Lewis, we took to Facebook to give our thanks:
“Morriston you were awesome! Thank you for supporting the market in huge numbers and for such wonderful feedback – more of the same next month!
“Thanks also to all local businesses for being so supportive – Woodfield Street is for life, not just for market day!”
The market commenced at 9am on Woodfield Street, but the hard work started at 6:30am to ensure the smooth running of the event. From the outset the market was busy, with the whole bottom half of Woodfield Street filled with shoppers and browsers by mid morning.
The 40 local businesses that attended with their beautiful hand-made items and delicious food were selling out by Midday! Music was provided by local songwriters Andy Morse and Gareth Lewis, collectively known as Fever Sparks, which added to the great vibe of the day. We’re already looking forward to the next Morriston Market on Saturday 6th August!
Some of the comments received from the public on Facebook:
“The market was brilliant; seeing Woodfield Street spring (back) into life is what this community needs and deserves. Thank you 🙂 see you next month!!”
“Thank you for bringing Morriston back to life.”
“Loved it X Great to see Morriston so busy X”
