ST MARY'S MARKET
a church led community enterprise inspired by the teachings of Jesus
St Mary's market is a revolutionary concept market offering local people a space to acquire the basic goods that we need to sustain and nurture ourselves while at the same time caring for other people and the planet by leading more simple lives.
We aim to sell, swap and barter only fairly traded, locally produced, organic, or donated items which will contribute to a zero-waste or circular model of economics
Locally grown fresh vegetables Preloved clothes and bric-a-brac Donated books for sale or swap Fairtrade and organic store cupboard basics A refill point for essential household cleaning and soap products without plastic waste A place for local people to showcase their creations
The market is run by volunteers and welcomes everyone interested in helping at the market or on other church ventures. We invite all volunteers to become involved in the collective management and decision-making for this initiative.
This is a non-commercial enterprise run by the local church. Any profits will be used to develop St Mary's as a place for prayer, learning, inspiration and sharing.
The market will be a place to encourage localisation, self-reliance, low-impact living, and the sharing of creative talents in our community. Look out for workshops, classes, films and speakers to support our efforts to lead lives that inspire us and others as we are first inspired - by God.
