The Clog Market – Social Enterprise Rawtenstall
Who we are.
The Clog Market is an independent pop up market based in Rawtenstall, Lancashire. Started in 2016, it is a popular outdoor market and recognised as having an excellent track record for quality products and a positive customer experience. Created and owned by Jane Boys, Rossendale Business Awards – Enterprising Woman Award Winner 2018, it is now a social enterprise (sole trader) and was listed in Northern Life magazine’s “Best Christmas Markets” in the north of England.
We have been actively involved in regenerating Rawtenstall’s high street town scene by introducing markets and events to the town centre whilst building individuals skills, creating business opportunities and regenerating the economy through sales and income. This has ensured resources remain within Rawtenstall and been of benefit to existing Rawtenstall businesses.
The Clog Market is now considered to be a benchmark for other markets in Rossendale.
With a social business model, The Clog Market has a remit to build skills, confidence and capacity of traders to enable them to create earning potential.
Customers attend The Clog Market to shop, socialise and be inspired. They value the social atmosphere and experience. The Clog Market promotes Rawtenstall as being a place to shop, visit, work and live.
Our mission is to create vibrant markets which reflect, improve and inspire our communities.
