Derby Market Hall will be welcoming Just-Ice, a new ethical ice cream business as a number of new traders join the established tenants as part of an improvement programme.
Six new small businesses have joined the trader community over the last couple of months with another seven preparing to start their businesses at the Market Hall.
Derby Market Hall promotion with new branding is already up around the city and new signage is due to be erected at the Market Hall. This forms part of a comprehensive plan to transform the Market Hall and support the many small businesses that operate from there.
Linda Aston, Chair of Derby Market Hall Traders Association said:
“We are delighted to see new businesses joining Derby Market Hall. We have a long established and proud trading tradition in this historic setting and we want to ensure we are offering what our customers want. I think that the new businesses are ideal for our Market Hall as they provide an energy and quality that perfectly complements our current experienced traders. We always provide a warm welcome here and we’re on hand to encourage and assist new members of our Market Hall family. We can’t wait to greet the next group of new traders!”
Councillor Amo Raju, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture added:
“I can see why new traders would want to join Derby Market Hall as it is a diverse mix of small businesses in a lovely building in the heart of Derby. Some of the families that sell from the Market Hall have traded for many generations after establishing their businesses in 1866 when the Market Hall opened.”
“We have a passionate and dedicated Markets service working hard to reinvigorate the Market Hall. The number of new small businesses going into the Market Hall is a sign that we are really moving in the right direction operating a commercially successful and community focussed market for our residents and our many visitors. I know there is more to come with plans for speciality markets and the growth of the Farmers and Crafters’ Market and I will be pleased to see the Market Hall continue to go from strength to strength”
Just-Ice Ethical Ice Cream is due to open on Saturday 16th December at Unit 7&8, Derby Market Hall. More information is available on the Just-Ice website.
