With space for stalls both inside and outside, it promises to be a popular event regardless of the weather.

Lee Dalgleish, Commercial Property Manager at Heaton Group, said: “2023 was a tough year for many businesses, which has resulted in some vacant commercial units at Bishopgate Gardens.

“We are going to utilise these spaces, along with the plaza at the front of the building to host a unique indoor-outdoor pop up market together with Brew + Bake.


“Our vision is for a quarterly event that brings together fantastic artisan stalls, more than 500 of our tenants from Bishopgate Gardens and The Exchange along with shoppers from the City Centre.”
