WREXHAM'S monthly Street Market is in need of community support as retailers move online.

The Wrexham Street Market was taken over by Fern Evans in April 2023 and since then has come on leaps and bounds, tripling its number of local traders.

After starting with approximately 10 traders, the market built up the number of dedicated stall-holders to between 30 and 40. 

Fern said: "The aim of our market is not just to support our own traders, but to bring more footfall to the city centre and support the businesses already here.

"We use as many local traders as possible, which means that a lot of the money spent at our market goes back into the local economy, and helps support Wrexham as a whole.

"A lot of businesses start out at markets, so I feel it’s really important to support them and help them grow, as a lot of the time if they are successful they will go on to take on a permanent base, which should eventually mean less empty units in the centre."

The market traders work hard to ensure there is a huge variety of stalls and something for everyone.

Residents are able to browse through local produce, handmade items and unique gifts as well as great food and drink that can be enjoyed in the undercover seating area.

"Wrexham has always been a market town and we are really keen to get that back", Fern continues.

"Although people’s shopping habits have changed massively over the last few decades, there is definitely still a place for markets.


"Customers seem to love having somewhere to go where they can have a ‘hands on’ experience and browse unique items that they wouldn’t be able to find online."

The Street Market is held on the first Saturday of every month.

The next event will be on February 3 from 10am onwards.
