Covent Garden Market Leamington Spa Sunday 28th May 2023

Another local street market offering all manner of locally made foods, drinks, arts and crafts by some very skilled artists and artisans.

Where else can you find one-off items other than events like this?! We need to protect consumer choice and this is a great way to do it, many of us (like myself) are self employed and rely heavily on the custom of local folk to keep us going … so I hope to see you there, it is really super important to give us all support.
