Ipswich Market this Saturda

Hi Everyone
Our last market in Ipswich we celebrated running The Handmade Expo for five years.
We are pretty proud of ourselves we must say. We have gone from strength to strength, learning and improving along the way.
We have stallholders come and go as they find their own niche and their special place in the handmade chain but we always have at least 65 stallholders, which builds to 130 or more by November.
The variety is always amazing and the quality always improving as people grow their little businesses.
Since our last newsletter, we have updated our logo to include our new and exciting MOTTO... Excellence in Making-Baking-Growing.  This is just one of our our points of difference.  We believe that all of our stallholders who attend our markets Excels in the making-baking and growing department :)

We were lucky to have Mayor Paul come to wish us well and present us a lovely certificate from the City of Ipswich acknowledging our achievement in running the market. We are very grateful for his support of us and the market.

We hope you are enjoying what we bring to you each and every month at the Ipswich Turf Club and as always are working continuously behind the scenes to bring you an event that is second to none.

The next Ipswich market is on 21st September at the Ipswich Turf Club from 8am - 2pm.  We have 2 very special guests who will be joining us from 9am (until around 11am)
The famous Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater.  Very exciting :)
So, we hope that you can make it....

Liesa, Micky & Miriam
Look out for our new Banners..
