Shop Small Market in Heckington
text | Shop Small Market

The Shop Small Market took place in Heckington on Saturday 2 December 2023, to celebrate Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.

Pitches were free of charge to businesses, and we saw an array of products being sold, from sweet treats to Christmas decorations. There was a 210% increase in footfall at the Village Green on the day of the Shop Small Market, compared to the three previous Saturdays, hopefully bringing wider benefits to the local community.

The Shop Small Market was funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, under the Events Programme, please see below for some images of the event.
