Client News: Haynes Market launching in Spring 2023

March 2023 will see the launch of an exciting new independent Market at the prestigious Haynes Motor Museum, at Sparkford near Yeovil.

The new monthly Saturday Market is the brainchild of Taunton businesswoman Michelle Beck who started the popular Taunton Independent Market in 2019, and the Bridgwater Independent Market earlier this year. Michelle also owns the Somerset based events company "By Invitation Events".

Michelle said, “As a proud Somerset girl, I am hugely excited to be bringing a regular destination Market to the iconic Haynes Motor Museum in Spring 2023 and I already have tremendous support from many of the local traders and organisations I work with. The new Market at Haynes will be a new, quality destination market, the first in the area and will showcase the South West’s best food and drink, crafts, gifts, homewares, beauty and fashion. The Market at Haynes will trade from 10am until 3pm, on one Saturday a month.

Sarah Berry, Events Manager at Haynes Motor Museum said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Michelle on this exciting project, which will not only bring more people to the area but will also give local independent businesses a regular opportunity to sell their products in South Somerset. We already hold a regular Car Boot Sale at the Museum, which is very popular, and the new monthly market will further add to our community offer.”

Michelle added, "With many small businesses continuing to face difficult times, my aim is to make the new Market at Haynes a place that people will go to, to support local businesses and to help to put Somerset firmly on the map as a quality South West shopping and social destination”.

The prestigious Haynes Motor Museum houses the UK's largest exhibition of the greatest cars from around the world. Established in 1985 by John Harold Haynes OBE (1938–2019 the museum is divided into fourteen exhibitions. Haynes also founded the Haynes Publishing Group, which is best-known for the Haynes Manuals that cover the maintenance and repair of cars and motorcycles. Haynes Motor Museum is open daily, all year round.
