A new seasonal market is being launched in Birmingham to celebrate some of the country’s most unusual independent traders. The pop-up Spring Market will be held at Digbeth’s canalside venue The Bond on Saturday, April 12.

More than 50 traders will be bringing artisan food, beer and local art to the quarterly event being launched by the team behind the Bournville Waffle Company. The streetfood business was launched in January last year by three young Brummies wanting to recreate memories of the waffles they ate on childhood holidays to France. Over the last year they have toured the country serving waffles with bespoke toppings including rocky road, lemon meringue and banoffee pie, from their specially-converted 1970s Mustang caravan. Founder Jennifer Deeley said: “We have been lucky enough to travel all over the country and we’ve sampled some incredible food, met some inspiring traders and heard some great music. “We came up with the idea for the Spring Market because we wanted to bring the best of them back home to Birmingham for everyone to enjoy.”

With three areas – for arts, food producers and street food – the market running from midday to 6pm will also feature a craft beer stand and cocktail bar. The market will showcase 50 handpicked artists, local designers and food exhibitors, alongside a street food market and bar on a busy Saturday when shoppers flock into the city. There will be live entertainment and workshops for visitors. The event will pull together the best of art and food in the Midlands.

The venue is a 10 minute walk from the city centre and parking is available a short walk away. The canal side venue is a fantastic location for the market. A large Victorian canopy provides a covered area for the street food market and bar and there is a seating area for visitors to relax, eat and drink. The Gatehouse is a stunning contemporary space to host the arts and food exhibitors.
