Photographer's Note

Some of the glorious colours on display at the market held in the centre of Nottingham today. I couldn't wait to see what they looked like on the computer :)

Our Aim
To build a street event that draws together a number of vital elements providing colour and character, blending the exotic with the sustainable, putting eco-friendly awareness before mass production and original creative thinking alongside the traditional.
To create an original themed market with a selection of stalls that are selling products of excellent quality and unquestionable authenticity. To form our World Market, we actively seek out that which is ‘unusual’ and often, undervalued.

What’s in a Name?
After much time deliberating over a name for this themed market we finally decided on World Village Market for the following reasons:
Unique to the UK
It could really only be created in Britain – it is a truly British product. We feel that Britain provides the most complete meeting place in the world; the old world and the new world, the developing world and the most highly developed all come together in the UK. No other country in Europe has such a history of empire and emigration and immigration –our major cities are microcosms of the world.

Britain now has one of the world’s richest food cultures with dishes from India, Thailand, the Caribbean, South America as well as Europe providing ingredients to our nation’s staple diet. Our event, features many of these dishes (and the cultures behind them) bringing them to market squares and streets throughout the UK.

One World Working Together?
A celebration of the street trading tradition that is common to all countries throughout the world. Street trading is still a way of life in many countries to the East and is now perhaps seeing a resurgence in the Western World.
