The Labour Party’s Morriston councillors are urging locals to come and enjoy the first Morriston Market, which takes place this Saturday, July 2, from 9am to 1pm at Woodfield Street.
The market, which is paid for and supported by Morriston councillors, is organised by the team behind the hugely successful Uplands and Marina markets.
It features 40-plus stalls selling everything from fresh bread to sausages, and from clothing to artwork. Besides offering plenty to take home, the market will feature stalls selling street food to eat right away.
Further market days will follow in August and September, with regular market days planned if the market proves successful.
Councilor Yvonne Jardine said: “I am very much looking forward to the first Morriston market. My fellow Morriston councillors and I will be holding a street surgery there for anyone who has any issues they would like to discuss with us.”
Morriston councilor Ceri Evans added: “The market follows in the footsteps of the excellent Uplands and Marina markets, which have been a hugely popular with the local communities and have really helped to enliven and invigorate Uplands and the Marina.
“We felt Morrison would welcome a similar market and we are delighted by the number of stallholders who have rushed to sign up for it. I’m sure it will be a great success for everyone involved.”
