Witney Craft and Gift market has rapidly become one of Mynt Image’s most popular and high performing markets since its establishment in 2017. This year, to cope with the high demand for this location, we have added additional dates. This market seems to perform well all year and has become very sought after.
Witney Corn Exchange is a beautiful Victorian building built in 1863 right in the centre of Witney. It overlooks the bustling market place and really is a quality venue. Witney is 12 miles west of Oxford, and is a large town, with 28,000 residents. It is classed as being a prestigious place to live being very close to the Cotswolds as well as close to Oxford. The Corn Exchange re-opened in 2015 after being refurbished and we are very pleased to be able to use this magnificent building
This is a ground floor hall with unloading very close to one of the access doors. There is a short ramp up to the door, making this hall easy to use for those with mobility difficulties. Once unloaded, stall holders move their cars to a local car park, though have on occasions been able to park for free adjacent to the hall. The Corn exchange fronts onto the regular Saturday market at Witney which attracts both locals and tourists to this picturesque and prestigious older area of the town.
We already have established a core group of stall holders at this location who book Witney Corn Exchange well in advance, realising its potential. However we do still have room for new stall holders to join this established group and reap the benefits of this market. Sales in excess of £200 are regular with sales of between £350 and £750 being achieved by several stall holders. This is a wealthy area and this market has rapidly become one of our top 3 markets. As this market continues to establish itself and become part of Witney life each month, we believe that sales and footfall will continue to increase.
During the Covid-19 pandemic a one system was added which together with our other measures makes this a very Covid secure market.
