More stalls expected as market grows
A market is expanding following the success of the inaugural event.
More than 1,000 people attended the first Green Beans Market held at Whitley Bay Metro Station in June.
As a result, organisers have received more requests and interest from people wanting stalls at the forthcoming market, which takes place on Sunday from 10am.
A market spokesperson said: “While the market is expanding to accommodate lots of new stall holders, the vision remains the same – to promote and encourage local enterprise.
“Almost all the stalls at the market will be local people selling interesting new products that meet the theme of food, produce and upcycling – all with a creative focus.
“There are many exciting new stalls for the July market, including the Thrift shop who will soon be opening a big store in Whitley Bay.
“Seaglass is a initiative started by a mother-and-daughter team making gifts for family and friends. They utilize found objects from the beach to make a wonderful array of jewellery, and use some of the profits to support greyhound rescue.
“The Workers Education Association will be running a food swap event for allotment holders and home gardeners.”
They added: “We would like to thank North Tyneside Council, Nexus and DBRegio for their help and support.”
