Made Bradford returns host popular monthly market this October

The popular Made Bradford markets are continuing to attract footfall into Bradford City Centre with the next running on Saturday 7th October.

Made Bradford was established in early 2017 by local business people, Shy Burhan and Matt Lamont. A professional photographer and brand designer respectively; both have utilised their skills, contacts and experience in order to create a truly unique shopping experience for the Bradford shopper. Proud Bradfordians and stalwart creatives, they understand the appeal of small, local, independent businesses on shoppers in a challenging economy.

Co-Founder, Shy Burhan said:

“We are small businesses ourselves and we understand the challenges that we face on a daily basis. Working in creative industries, can be even trickier as it more niche and needs to attract a certain type of buyer. Fortunately, we live in a city where there are talented artists and producers. And a public who appreciate their work. Our markets hopefully offer the traders a platform where they might not have a shop frontage.”

The markets feature local traders who sell handmade, quality arts, crafts and local produce.

The organisers will be running their tenth market this year, and will continue to host it at the Oastler Square from 10am until 4pm on Saturday 7th October.

The traders, including eight new to the market, are; the Quality Yorkshire Pie Company, The Craft Market, Made By Maureen – crafts, Woods Brownies, Skull Candles, Glassic Gifts, Quirky ’n’ Perky crafts, Idle Cake Toppers, Craftsea – scarves, IHM Events – handmade multi-flavoured candy floss, Asmaz Glass Paintings, Glass by Lydia Haines, Shaun Wood – woodwork, New City Cafe (caribbean food), Guzelain Cafe, The Mobile Creperie – french pancakes.

Matt Lamont said:

“We are very excited to see our markets continue to expand in the City Centre. It is clear that we are attracting new traders all the time who are keen to inject a bit of ‘handmade goodness’ back into Bradford. It’s a great day out for the family as well, and we always have a variety of goodies on offer.”
