Knutsford Market Hall reopens with new faces

Knutsford Market Hall’s essential traders are looking forward to their fellow traders joining them from April 13th.

The market’s essential traders, Jonty’s Fruit and Veg, Plastic Free Weigh, The Market Butcher and Morgan Edwards have been supporting the town and trading throughout the lockdown.  They will be joined by Slipped Discs, Greeting Cards and Balloons of Knutsford, Style Loft Boutique, The Market Café (takeaway only) and newcomer Deliveroot on April 13th.

Deliveroot specialise in house plants, exotic houseplant kits and garden accessories, seeds and bulbs alongside planters and containers.  Set up by Graham Jones, originally online only, this is Graham’s first retail outlet.  Graham said, “I have been looking for a low cost ‘start up’ for some time and when I saw the space become available in Knutsford Market, I jumped at the chance to join. I am looking forward to offering something different for Knutsford and the Market and meeting customers – existing and new. My products are quite different to the usual garden centre offer and I am more than happy to chat to customers about what is the best plant for them”.

There is also a new face behind eco stall and weigh and save, Plastic Free Weigh.  Vikki Malcolm took over the reins from Charlene Stuart in March and has been busy refining and adding product lines and getting to know her customers.  Vikki, who is passionate about the environment, is a firm advocate of living a life with less waste.  “I have always tried to make informed decisions about the products I buy, and I am delighted in being able to take over Plastic Free Weigh.  Customers will find all the fantastic household staples, cleaning products and eco toiletries they have come to expect but I am also adding a few more ranges.  I’ve been made to feel very welcome by customers and my fellow traders and can’t wait until we can all be open properly.”

Sandra Curties, Town Centre and Marketing Officer said, “We have been overwhelmed with the support the market has received during the past year and the increase love for ‘shopping local’.  We are looking forward to Graham joining the team and think he will be a great addition to the market offer.  We still have one stall available to rent for just over £200 per month inclusive of electricity, VAT and Wi-Fi so if you are interested please get in touch”.

Please note the Market will be operating in adherence to current government guidelines so social distancing and PPE will be in place.  The Market Café will be strictly takeaway only.
