Outdoor Markets in Truro 2024

We'll be continuing to support two regular outdoor markets on Lemon Quay during 2024 by lending out our colourful gazebos to Cornwall Shop Small and the Truro Antiques and Collectables Market. 

The BIG Truro Market, hosted by Truro Farmers Market and Cornwall Shop Small, will be on the last Saturday of the month from March to October. This Cornwall Shop Small event hosted alongside Truro Farmers Market, consists of locally created and curated wares from independent traders, with Truro Farmers Market produce stalls. 
The Truro Antiques and Collectables Market offering interesting and unusual items will also be returning from Spring 2024. 

We first initiated Truro Antiques and Collectables Market in 2019 and bringing the Cornwall Shop Small Market to Truro in 2021. 

The objective of these markets is to generate new and additional customer footfall into the city that will potentially benefit many other businesses, including hospitality. 

To help bring the outdoor markets to the city, we were awarded Accelerated Capital Funding from the Truro Towns Fund to purchase market equipment. Both markets use our colourful gazebos. We also support the Truro Antiques and Collectables Markets by funding and delivering marketing activity.
