Waste-Free Living Market

The Local Folk are happy to announce Wellington’s very first Waste-Free Living Market which will take place in and around Tonedale Mill.

There will be live music, a number of stalls to come and visit and food and drink from Braziers Coffee Roasters to purchase.


It is a place for local and reputable makers, suppliers and services of goods and services that educate, encourage and enable people to live a waste-free life.

It is a market for our community to come together, support local businesses that make a difference, and most importantly, share information, skills and tools that are good for our bodies, homes, community and the environment.


We believe now more than ever it is so important to buy, use, make & reuse sustainable, environmentally friendly products where possible. With a product’s carbon footprint also in question we wanted to show that a lot of these products & services are available to us via local small businesses instead of big high street chains. We want to bring these businesses to you within our market for our town.


There will be a mix of makers & services within the following categories: Household, Personal Hygiene, Sustainable Clothing, Food plus Sustainable businesses giving talks & demonstrations.
