PopUpMarket “pops up” at 24 Carrots Farmers Market

Cloudberry’s first PopUpMarket Project stall comes to Birmingham this month at the 24 Carrots Farmers Market in the Jewellery Quarter on Saturday 17th December 2011. Theatre Ark, a youth production company, will be running Prospero’s Books, a recycled book stall which will not only provide experience of working on market stalls for young people but also raise valuable funds for their future performances. The fundraising will also continue beyond market day with books continuing to be available via a donation scheme at Brewsmiths Cafe, near Snow Hill Station.

The PopUpMarket project will continue  in the new year with additional stalls providing opportunities for young disadvantaged people in and around Ladywood to gain experience of entrepreneurship by running their own market stall.

The ‘PopUp’ concept has also been highlighted as a means to employment and community building in the recent report for the government by Mary Portas, encouraging the idea of a National Markets Day.
