The Real Meals Speciality Market has become well established in Saltburn and has a strong following of independent retailers. The speciality market takes place outside Sommerfield, the largest supermarket in the town.
Organiser, Lorna Jackson, says "As an independent retailer we can no longer afford to sit back and wait for customers. We need to be proactive and join with other retailers to offer shopper great choice and service.”
Since the Agora Partnership was formed Saltburn has run a series of initiatives to strengthen its shopping and visitor experience. Local business owner Elaine Dyer says “Chocolini’s supports the market because it is fun. Saltburn has successfully retained its traditional high street and the market adds to the atmosphere."
