First Watton entrepreneur market to take place tomorrow morning
An enterprising scheme to help new start-up businesses in Watton and rejuvenate the high street will be launched tomorrow morning, Saturday May 19.
The entrepreneur market will offer stalls to about 16 small businesses selling items ranging from posh dog collars to replica weapons.
The scheme, inspired by Mary Portas's report on saving the nation's high streets, hopes to introduce successful enterprises to local landlords to help them share leases in currently empty stores.
Chris Edwards of Edwards Newsagent said: 'My hope for the day is to provide an alternative shopping experience in Watton that brings a little that's different to the high street because that's what we want to achieve in the long term.'
The market will be open between 9am and 1pm on Saturday May 19.
