The Green House Community Market @ The Gallery, is an entirely new concept for Letchworth. The Green House objective is: to promote that buying local produce makes good sense and also encourage the redistribution of used goods via Arts / Crafts / Collectables Fairs and Auctions. We are devoted to hosting events which focus on Recycling/Reuse/Handmade/locally produced goods for sale.
We are not saying, don’t buy new; or mass-produced, what we are suggesting is that perhaps we should, as responsible society, all use our manufactured goods a little bit longer than we do presently! Be innovative, paint, adapt, remake, sew/knit used materials, all very enjoyable pastimes, which will help your budget, produce a unique item and also help save the planet! At the same time as our visitors help to reduce our community’s contribution to landfill sites, they will have a great day out and much of the time, get a bargain and save money too!
As we are not aware of any other permanently situated venue that offers this service, we think the Green House Community Market, is very special and quite unique. Our Venue offers this service, 7 days a week (potentially), if there is anywhere else in the Herts/Beds or Cambridge area which does this please let us know, as we would love to be affiliated with similar groups in the same field of service.
The market is primarily a ‘GREEN’ trading place, in that the majority of the goods for sale will be Reuse, Recycled, Handmade or Fresh Local Produce. The Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation have provided a wonderful, undercover, open-air venue for Letchworth and have been very supportive in our work to ensure this new concept is launched with great success.
