Local Makers Market Continues to Grow in Bury St Edmunds with Mumpreneur at the helm

Local Mumpreneur Hayley Peters announces regular Makers Markets for Bury St Edmunds at The Unitarian Meeting House on 1st Saturday of every month.

Hayley Peters of Buxhall is in her fourth year of organising local markets in Bury St Edmunds and has changed the event from a quarterly fair to a monthly one.  Hayley, who runs online boutique Ivy Joan said ‘The markets have been such a success over the last three years that I felt we were ready to make them a more regular event.  It’s a really exciting step for the Makers Markets as it will provide a regular selling platform for our local traders and will improve the shopping experience for our customers.  They’ll know when and where they’ll be able to find us’.

The markets were set up four years ago after Hayley returned to Bury St Edmunds from London and

felt there was a gap in the market for local handmade products and art.  The markets have a bar serving Bury’s very own F&E coffee and each month hosts 20 selected makers with a variety of wares from vintage to art to artisan food.  There is always something for everyone.

Hayley runs website ivyjoan.co.uk and sells a variety of vintage items, candles, homewares and fashion.

The markets will be taking place on the first Saturday of each month at the Unitarian Meeting House on Churchgate St, Bury St Edmunds.  The first one kicks off this weekend on Saturday May 5th, and runs from 10.30am to 4pm.
