Alfreton Indoor Market adds crafts and vintage attractions

Offering a shopping experience with a little extra - Alfreton Indoor Market, on Institute Lane, is set to become an exciting destination for craft hobbyists and vintage collectors.

The market has always been a popular choice with local shoppers who value its range of products and reputation for a great bargain, not to mention recent improvements to roof and doors which help provide a very comfortable constant temperature. And now new attractions will further enhance its popularity.

On the first Saturday of each month market visitors will be treated to a ‘Crafty Saturday’ selection of stalls selling crafts, home made gifts and locally produced items. This will be followed on the third Saturday of each month by a vintage table top area where they will be able to browse bric-a-brac, memorabilia and retro goodies.

All of the usual stalls will be open for business at the same time.

In addition to the usual 8:30am - 4:30pm opening times on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the indoor market will also now be opening on Wednesdays between 8:30am and 2:00pm.

The indoor market boasts an impressive retail offering, including:

  • butcher
  • green-grocer
  • baker
  • hairdresser
  • haberdashery
  • card-making accessories
  • cake-making accessories
  • gifts
  • candles
  • plants
  • ladies’ wear

  • holistic items
  • watch batteries & straps
  • gold purchasing
  • party goods
  • collectables
  • community fund stall
  • DVD’s, CD’s and gaming

A clothes alterations business will shortly be joining the market team as well as a children's clothing stall

The market includes the Alfreton Market Café where refreshments can be enjoyed and customers can sit a while and take a break from their shopping in the new communal area adjacent to the cafe

In a bid to encourage even more traders into the market, the council is offering new traders the opportunity to apply for three free month rent reduction – subject to a six-month commitment. Traders wishing to expand and grow are also supported with rent incentives to encourage expansion.
