A new vintage market debuts on Brighton’s New Road next month, bringing 50 vintage traders plus independent food vendors to the pedestrianised heart of the city. Organiser Katrine Palsager tells us what to expect from The New Road Vintage & Collectors Market.
Why is now the right time for a new Brighton vintage market?
The appetite for vintage in Brighton remains healthy and with our event experience and the support of the council we think this is a good time to introduce a central market that will hopefully be loved by the community.
