Delegates attending the 10th International Public Markets Conference, visited Greenwich Market on Saturday 7 June to find out more about our best practices and how we have successfully responded to the changing market landscape. The group of some 40 delegates were representing markets and market related business from places as far flung as Toronto, Miami, Tokyo, Latvia, Connecticut and Milan. They were really interested- and impressed - to hear how Greenwich Market, a privately owned market, had chosen to grow its reputation as London’s best art & crafts market, supporting shops and traders with a marketing programme which includes social media, website, events and advertising and also how the market as a whole is embracing a plastic free ethos and a considered recycling scheme. The delegates enjoyed meeting and talking to the traders – many thanks to all our traders for their contribution. The visit inspired an interesting debate on how markets can well provide space for local economic activities. Follow the debate on twitter: https://twitter.com/myfanwy_t/status/1137304722107437056
