THE SHOP SMALL MARKET IS COMING!
We're so excited to be returning to hosting real life events (with some added virtual fun) with The Cornwall Shop Small Market. Showcasing the very best of locally created and curated wares from some amazing indie traders. Including contemporary craft & design, vintage & salvage finds, home & garden inspo, fashion & lifestyle wares and some artisan food & drink, there is something for everyone!
The Shop Small Market will be a monthly event taking place on the third(ish) weekend of the month. The Saturday will be market day with an outdoor tented market taking place in the heart of Truro. Then on the Sunday we'll be heading over @duchyfairs on insta for a virtual showcase. Both the market and insta event are free to visit! Truro BID have sponsored the event and we're really grateful for their support in making this happen. We have big plans for taking the event forward, we're starting with about 30 traders but are looking to expand the event going forward. We have an exciting vision!

WHY SHOP SMALL?
Here at Duchy Fairs our commitment is to spreading big love for shopping small and celebrating the value of buying independent. What do we mean by value? For us the value in shopping small is primarily about buying original, beautiful, interesting, artisan, small batch and quality products. You also have more of an insight into where, what you buy, comes from. Shopping small puts you in control of buying locally, ethically and in an environmentally friendly way. You're also supporting an indie trader or small business, something which you can feel good about something that is even more valuable in these challenging times.
