National market day sees the start of two weeks of the first national Love Your Local Market campaign pop up market in Bolton. Apprentice semi-finalist and market trader Adam Corbally will be giving talks and celebrity chef Simon Rimmer will be giving demonstrations as part of the campaign.
Bolton council’s cabinet member for community services, Cllr Akhtar Zaman, said: “Markets play a key role in the vitality of the town centre and that’s why we’re investing £4.5 million in Bolton Market. “Holding the pop-up market gives people the chance to trade and they are a great way for entrepreneurs to get experience in a retail environment.”
Selling hand-crafted cards, beauty treatments and potted plants among other goods the market opens on 25th June.
