Our Story

Lisa Cowley, developed the Independent Street brand after 7 years experience in the industry. Independent Street organises a series of monthly and one off events alongside councils, business groups, large corporate clients and communities.

Independent Street champions local independent businesses and produce. We aim to provide a platform for small businesses to showcase to their local community.

Pop along and join us! It is a superb opportunity to find out the origins of your food, meet our makers and bakers, feast your eyes upon some goodies and fill those shopping bags whilst indulging in some good old conversations with our team and stall holders. 

We take great pride in delivering eclectic specialist events with many award winning local producers of unique goods set to inspire. 

We are incredibly passionate about creating opportunities for new business and enterprise.

What We Do…

  • Independent Street works alongside councils and hospitality venues to ensure a well thought out and curated event is put together. Something which encompasses the spirit of the local community and an event the whole town can enjoy

  • Our events generate footfall and increase awareness for our host site through our extensive marketing and presence on social media

  • Our events provide the opportunity for greater footfall for local business in the towns and villages where we showcase 

  • We work with the permanent retailers in the area, the community groups, local producers, musicians and residents to ensure an event the whole community can enjoy and benefit from

  • Our host site becomes ‘the’ destination on event day for local people and also attracts visitors from further afield

  • We take great pride in bringing the community together. We love to create buzz, atmosphere and add colour to our projects

  • We love exploring new areas and towns and discovering the local artisans. Each event is tailored to its own unique location

  • Our events are highly thought of, high end, creative, inspirational, quality and family friendly

At Independent Street you can definitely expect the unexpected. Our markets are full of creativity, great food, collectibles and unique products created by makers who are as passionate about what they do as we are. It is a privilege to represent these amazing small businesses. We hope you can join us soon!
