History of Finzels Reach Market

Founded 6 years ago by Sophie Bowden and David Pyne, Finzels Reach Market opened whilst Finzels Reach was still in development and has become part of the make-up of this exciting and vibrant quarter. Located on a site which was once the home to Courage Brewery and previously George's Brewery; the market has gone through quite the journey.  Having launched whilst the area was still a building site; the market reopened during lockdown covid secure and has since grown from a weekly market to a successful twice weekly market showcasing over 40 different traders every month. 


The market is carefully curated meaning traders change twice weekly resulting in an ever-changing selection of street food on offer. Look out for guest traders, seasonal food and themed markets.
