I've written recently about our new market which Starts on September the 10th at Stroud Green primary school. Thank you to everyone who's been enthusiastic with support & helpful suggestions! I'm very excited about it & hope it'll be a real benefit to this community.
The preparations are going well & we're going to put on a good show, with around 20 stalls to start with.
What's of the greatest importance, though, is that we get the word about & tell as many people as possible that it's happening. If it's well promoted & enough people come to visit in the first month, then the news should spread naturally & the market will hopefully thrive & eventually become a real fixture.
If any of you can help in this, I'd be grateful. Anything you can do will be valuable & I'd welcome all suggestions, but the following are my ideas:
1) I've got 5000 leaflets to give away, and I'll be around & about in the next month trying to get rid of them. If you'd take a few, either to give to friends, leave in a local shop, or give to a community group to raise awareness, please get in touch, or just tell me where'd be good & I'll drop them off myself.
2) The same goes for posters & banners. I can't just put them on railings & lamp posts, but shop windows, the windows/front doors of houses, and local notice boards, would be great. If anyone would allow me to do this or has a clever idea...just say!
3) The website is www.stroudgreenmarket.com
Shares, likes, follows & comments on all of these...much appreciated!
4) Finally (and easiest of all, but probably most important): please just tell anyone & keep talking about it. If you're in touch with any groups, forums, societies etc, do let them know (I'm actually very interested in local groups having stalls, though I know this is hard to organise).
This might be a lot to ask, especially as I haven't anything to offer in return, except thanks, no action of any sort is too little to be helpful & appreciated by me.
Thank you all very much!
