Congratulations goes to Teresa Jones from the Sugar Craft Unit for being Trader Of The Month. Teresa especially deserves this accolade for all her hard work over the years but for also recently adding the new Haberdashery element to her business.
Jamie Ward has been trading on Oswestry Market for over 20 years and was one of the original founders of the Farmers’ Market as it was called then.
Jamie often tells how trading at Oswestry Market was a pivotal moment for him as at the time his business was struggling. Having a market stall gave him the opportunity to grow his supply network to the point where he now has three outlets and has just opened a new butchers in Chirk. This is the reason why he can no longer commit to attending the Artisan Market any more although he is reluctant to do so.
He has been a great role model to outdoor trading and we wish him the best of luck with his new venture.
Bernard and Sue have been trading on Oswestry Market for over 34 years and have set a great example, not only as hard working traders but also as fantastic friends to our market. They have a colourful personality which will be sadly missed, although I’m sure we shall continue to see them on the market regularly. Wishing you a fantastic retirement .
