Real Food Market Brings Businesses to a New Audience

Jan 18, 2020

This February sees the return of the Real Food Ilkley Market and BID members are now able to book one of 3 pitches each month for the next 3 months, with funding from the BID.

Previous businesses who have taken up the offer have included The Little Tea House, Prickly Pear, Alpine Lifestyle Boutique, Fuggle & Golding and Moin Moin Backerei. (Each business can take up this offer once only).

Liam Wilton from Moin Moin Backerei booked a stall at the November market and found it a very positive day’s trading. He told us “The Real Food Ilkley market has had a positive impact on our business. It has allowed us to reach and engage with more potential customers, some of whom are now coming in the shop during the week. It’s also great to see other local businesses flourishing as part of the monthly market.”

Mark from Fuggle & Golding said, “Just wanted to say thanks again for letting us be one of your BID slots at the market yesterday, it was a great day and a fantastic opportunity for our business to be seen on the Grove!”

If you’d like to promote your business to a new audience in this prominent position on The Grove, email Helen at info@ilkleybid.co.uk
