Next week we celebrate our third birthday:

Stirchley Community Market launched on Tuesday 27th July 2010 with its first market in the car park of Stirchley United Working Men’s Club, selling wholefoods, bread, hot curry, pizza, artisan preserves, cupcakes, seasonal fruit and vegetables, and local arts and crafts. Since then, the market has gone from strength to strength, and has doubled the amount of stallholders on offer each month, yet it still remains an inclusive, fun, community and social event, not to be missed by locals and wannabe Stirchley residents.

Market Manager Chris Swann, “Stirchley Community Market was born from a desire of residents to promote the best of the local area, in both the produce which it creates and the sense of community that it fosters. The positivity of all those involved from the outset meant that a group of well meaning people could create something that was greater than the sum of its parts, aided by the professional expertise of an excellent Town Centre Manager in Matthew Powell, and the generous spirit of both our volunteers and our hosts, Stirchley United Working Men’s Club, who have provided us with a space to thrive for the past three years.”

We can’t quite believe it has been three whole years of Stirchley Community Market – how time flies!
