This Sunday, 60 businesses will be setting up stall at the tennis courts on Bowness’s Glebe Road for a day of trading.

This is the first market of this kind and represents the first of several projects created by the organisation, Bowness and Windermere Forward.

The market will run from 10am-4pm and large numbers are expected to attend after the success of a 2018 trial market, which brought the established Prom Art exhibition from Grange-over-Sands.

Three thousand visitors came last year, and Glebe Market will welcome back Prom Art alongside a vibrant mix of Cumbrian and local traders. Many traders will also be accepting the Lake District Pound and this will be available to buy on site using cash or card.

Bowness and Windermere Forward reached out to local businesses in the immediate area to take stalls and there has been a strong response with many taking the opportunity for some temporary lakeshore frontage.



Helen Moriarty, Project Manager for Bowness and Windermere Forward, said: “There was a very strong positive response from the local businesses and the wider community to the markets. We are hopeful that events of this kind will enhance our area for those who live here and those who visit.”

The Glebe Markets featuring Prom Art, which will be on the second Sunday of the month, join a range of other markets taking place on the Bowness tennis courts throughout spring and summer. Kendal Farmers' Market will be there on the first Friday of the month and a new Antiques and Collectibles Fair will happen every other Saturday.
