Welcome to Accrington Market Pop Up Shops! The perfect place to sell your wares with no long-term commitment.
The new initiative launched in July 2021 and has been a huge success. So much so that Accrington Market will be offering the opportunity for pop-up stalls every Saturday going forward. At just £20 per stall, it is the perfect opportunity to bring your cakes, produce and crafty creations to a bustling market.
The first pop-up event saw one stall sell out within the first hour of opening! Shoppers queued out of the door to buy the baked goods which has resulted in Accrington Market pop up shops being a long term fixture.
Building on Success
Sameena King is the Manager at Accrington Market. She is delighted with the recent addition to the market.
“We are really pleased with the success of our first pop-up stall weekend and can confirm we will be running this every Saturday inside Accrington Market. It has been a pleasure to give small businesses and start-ups the opportunity to test their product. The feedback from shoppers has been wonderful. We are on the lookout for unique small businesses, craft stalls and street food traders to join our community of stall holders.”
The pop-up events have included bath bombs and cosmetics, personalised gifts, homeware and baked goods. The pop-up stalls sit alongside the wide variety of traders and eateries inside the market hall.

In addition to her education, Mia has also worked at Wetherspoons but now she is pursuing her passion.
“I started Mia Jade Bakes in April 2021 after spending months baking in my spare time. The pop up shops have been great fun and I am grateful to everyone who comes along to support my small business.
Mia Jade Bakes’ most popular products are cookie sandwiches, blondies, brownies and cake jars. She bakes all her items personally from her home and also creates bespoke birthday cakes.
