ABOUT THE MARKET
Volunteer-powered for the community
Launched in November 2015, the Clocktower Market has been using volunteer-power to bring the community together for over five years now!
Run by a small committee of local residents, we pride ourselves on offering gazebo and table rental so that start-up business ideas can find the perfect place to bring their product to local consumers. All our profits are ploughed back in to the market, allowing us to charge lower pitch rates than any other London market. All this is possible through our wonderful volunteers - so go to "Get involved" if you like the idea of making a difference.
A big shout-out must go to the original group of volunteers who got the market off the ground, using their own money at first. Thank you Clocktower Market OG's:
Rachael Gould • Rebecca Nutt
Tiernan Hanby • David Joseph
Jasmine Morris • Sarah Samuelson
Rose Bartlett • Karen Elitamby
CLOCK TOWER TEAM
Meet the volunteers who make the market possible.
Karen has been part of the market since the very beginning, and knows everything there is to know (including how not to catch your hand in a gazebo, which is vital).
Lydia is always on the lookout for interesting new traders to join our diverse community market. She's the one who will be on the other end of the phone letting you know about our great market.
Lydia looks after our valued and existing traders, making sure all bookings are dealt with swiftly and that you have all the information you need to trade successfully at our ever growing market.
We don't know how she does it, but Tracey runs her own business, volunteers with the South Norwood festival, and is always across our finances. Pay late at your peril!
Social and content
Alessandra is the person who makes our market come alive on Instagram and Facebook. Small but mighty, she's one of the quickest at doing set-up.
Press & marketing
Piera is the person to talk to if you are interested in collaborating with the market or you want to write about us in local news outlets.
This role is in charge of the performance side of market day, so expect a lot of fun in 2021.
