Marking another milestone in building Hyde’s sustainable retail offering, Hyde Town Team are proud to announce the return of their ‘Meet the Market’ Event – a special one day programme, designed, entirely subsidized and developed by members of Hyde’s volunteer Town Team to introduce local retailers and organisations directly to the shopping community.

This event, which will be staged on Saturday 18th May 2019 on Hyde’s Market Square, gives all the participating Businesses, Retailers, Stall Holders, Non-profit organizations and Community Groups another unique opportunity to ‘get out in the fresh air’ – away from their traditional premises and present their products and services to Hyde’s Saturday shoppers from open air, pre-booked Market Stalls, a Grand Marquee and pop-up Gazebo’s.

The purpose of the ‘Meet the Market Day’ is to enable shoppers and visitors to connect and directly talk with local Hyde businesses who will be set up to ‘get up close and personal’ with their customers; so that they know exactly what they’re about and exactly who they are buying from.

Visitors to this year’s ‘Meet The Market Event’ will see Demonstrations and Presentations, be invited to participate in free Tastings, find out more about community groups and enter Competitions, – oh, and there’s a little sprinkling of Live Music and Entertainment to add to the occasion from the very talented Music Students from Hyde Community College and a local children’s Face Painter.

Hyde Town Team Chair, Julia Harrison said, “The generous support of community members, local businesses and organisations helps Hyde; as a small Market Town, to survive in today’s ever changing retail environment and by combining shoppers loyalty with businesses generously sponsoring and supporting these town centre events, show a shared commitment to sustaining an and energising Hyde as a traditional market town. “I would like to thank all our participating retailers, the organisations and community groups that have supported us thus far. And without the work of our ‘busy bee’ volunteers, this returning event, purposely designed to advance economic development, neighborhood vitality, and community building, wouldn’t be taking place.

So please make a date to visit Hyde Market on 18th May 2019 Pick up your BIG PRIZE RAFFLE TICKETS and take part in this unique shopping day.
