New Road Brighton Vintage Market

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.

Why did you choose this location?

New Road is in the heart of the city and it really does seem to have established itself as an outdoor festival location. The pedestrianszed open space makes it a great place to gather to enjoy the stalls, food and entertainment. Other Brighton festivals regularly host events and performances here – it’s got real spirit!

How will the market differ from other vintage markets in the city?

We’ll offer a mixture of handpicked specialist vintage traders and artisan food stalls. We want to create the classic hustle and bustle of a city market.
