A Small Business Saturday market will take place on Saturday 5th December within the newly re-built Dudley Market, in the town centre.

In addition to existing market sellers, one-off stalls will sell food, crafts, gifts, and more!

The festive market will run from 8am – 4pm, next to one of the town’s Christmas trees and in between the restored historic fountain and the refurbished Duncan Edwards statue.

There will be fantastic family entertainment provided, free of charge!

The event will be part of Dudley Council’s ongoing commitment to the national Small Business Saturday initiative, which encourages people to use local businesses wherever possible.  It will also mark the end of Dudley’s wider Small Business Week, from Monday 30th November to Saturday 5th December.

Anyone interested in having one of the remaining market stalls, which are free for the one day only, should email vanessa.brown@dudley.gov.uk

The email must include full name and address, phone number, details about the products they would like to sell and details of their environmental health certificate – if the sale of food or drink is being proposed.
