A popular new Preston venue will be hosting its first vintage market this weekend.

Chew’s Yard in Market Street West will host nine traders selling affordable vintage clothing and homewares. 

“Our arts, crafts and makers markets have been really popular,” said Frank Whiteley, Chew’s Yard’s manager. “Lots of our customers enjoy spending the afternoon with us eating, drinking and listening to live music and we found by running the arts markets that they love to browse and shop too.”

Nine traders will be selling their wares, including garments from the 50s to the 90s, festival fashion, bohemian homewares, and preloved clothing focusing on fashion from the football terraces. There will also be stylish second-hand furniture, art, accessories and more. 

The Vintage Market will take place at Chew’s Yard on Sunday (7 July) from 12pm to 6pm. 

“We will also have Saraban playing an acoustic set at 2pm,” said Frank. “And our food and drinks traders will be serving up delicious food and drinks.

“The market will take place in our events hall, and there will be space to eat and drink in our food and drink hall and beautiful courtyard garden. It’s free entry to the market, so we hope lots of people will come along and support it.”
