About 'Midlands Markets'
Who am I?
My name is Chloe, I am 28 and have lived in Derbyshire for my whole life. I live with my fiancé, our daughter and two little dogs, so our home life is always busy.
I love all things the local area has to offer, from little shops to cute cafés, peaceful walks and bustling towns.. I'm a Derbyshire girl through and through.
This business I am growing is my next baby and I hope you can see how passionate I am about all that I do.
Why did I begin?
My very first event was in August 2021. I had seen first hand the struggles that small, local, independent businesses were experiencing following the pandemic and it gave me the final push to put together my first event. I thought if I can help all these independents by bringing them and the public together all on one day, then why not?
I started with a Summer Market and Family Fun Day in aid of three fantastic Charities and raised over £1,200! From there visitors and business owners alike were asking for another event and soon, so I hosted our first Festive Market which again was a huge success and confirmed in my mind that this can and will be a great thing!
What's coming next?
I have lots of exciting things in the pipeline, seasonal events are coming thick and fast, as are the networking events. You will also find on my website a number of blog posts from local recommendations to gift guides. If there is anything you would like to see from Midlands Markets, or you would like to work together, please get in touch!
