Started in March 2008, this Sunday market regularly attracts over a eighty stallholders and many hundreds of visitors to the area. The market is run entirely by volunteers who are members of NENG. Contributions from stallholders fees have enabled donations exceeding £90,000 to be given to a variety of local charities. click HERE for a list of organisations the market has supported so far. Sadly the June 14 2020 market will not be held due to the Coronavirus situation but chosen beneficiaries (the Archer Project and St Wilfrid's Centre) will be paid from market reserves. Organisers look forward to welcoming stallholders and market goers again soon.
It is much more than a market with a varied programme of live entertainment which has included traditional morris dancers and modern streetdancers, school choirs and bands, university and local drama groups, Mexican and clog dancers, skiffle bands, local singers and instrumentalists and the Salvation Army band who start the proceedings with some rousing music.
To help keep everyone entertained, various activities and workshops are usually available for young people on the Nether Edge Bowling Green. Others can sit and chat whilst enjoying this "green oasis".
