Monmouth Children’s Market

Monmouth Childrens MarketThe Wednesday before Christmas saw Monmouth’s first ever Children’s Market. Over twenty local children, ranging in age from 7 to 18, gathered at the Shire Hall to sell their home-made goods. There was a wide variety of food and gifts for sale: artworks including pottery, paintings and photography by young local artists, decoupage covered furniture, and some curiosities such as bowls made out of old records and hand-carved walking sticks.


Monmouth Children’s Market at Christmas

Monmouth ChristmasThe first ever Monmouth Children’s Market takes place under the arches at the Shire Hall on Wednesday 21st December from 11am until 3 pm. The market sells loads of exciting edible and craft products made and sold by local children.

The market has been organised by 13-year old Isaac Gordon-Bruno. The event will be opening at 11am.

Isaac said: "I wanted to give children a chance to have a go at running their own business. There’s been lots of interest. I think it would be great if there could be a regular children’s market in town. Lots of children have good ideas, but it is really hard to get them into the marketplace."
