Five Valley’s team launch search for producers for Borough Market style venture!

30 November 2019

The team at Stroud’s Five Valleys Shopping Centre are on the look-out for the region’s best quality food and drinks producers and market traders to join them in an exciting new venture which is being launched early in the new year.
 
Five Valleys is currently undergoing a major redevelopment and programme of investment. The work includes a complete refurbishment of the multi storey car park which now houses a stunning green wall which will be visible over the coming weeks as the scaffolding comes down on the Rowcroft Retreat elevation.
 
And as part of the improvements the centre’s Yorkshire based owners Dransfield Properties Ltd have also unveiled plans for a stylish, indoor “Borough Market” style area, showcasing the region’s best local producers and traders.
 
The shopping centre team want to hear from local companies who are keen to be part of the exciting new project which will launch in February 2020, creating a fabulous new market which will operate seven days a week, with locally sourced produce. The plans will support local jobs as well as promoting less reliance on car journeys for food shopping. 
 
The design team at Dransfield Properties have taken their inspiration from London’s famous Borough Market and they are keen that the quality look and feel is mirrored in the line-up of traders who will be part of the new venture. 
 
The new market area will house 20 new indoor, permanent market stalls which will be installed in the main mall area at Five Valleys and are being manufactured by the Borough Market specialists. 
 
Managing Director of Dransfield Properties Mark Dransfield said: “We are passionate about delivering good quality markets in the communities where we work, and Gloucestershire is famous for its food producers.
 
“The market area is going to look stunning and we now want traders to come forward to be part of this exciting new project. This will underpin Stroud’s commitment to a truly sustainable town centre.”
 
The Five Valley’s Centre Manager Dionne Moore is heading up the search for local traders and producers who would like to be considered for the new Five Valleys Market. 
 
Dionne added: “We would really like to hear from producers and traders now who want to register their interest in the new market so we can be ready to launch early in 2020.
 
“The development is really started to take shape now and as the scaffolding starts to come down on the multi storey car park we’ll be able to see the new green wall and the major improvements which have been made.” 
 
The team are looking for traders including; a fishmonger, craft-brewers, cheesemonger, butchers, artisan bakers, a chocolatier, coffee seller and greengrocer. To register your interest contact Dionne on
