Independent businesses remain open at Five Valleys Artisan Market, but they need our support


While the latest lockdown is proving devastating for many local retailers, that’s not the case for traders at the Five Valleys Artisan Market in Stroud which are remaining open throughout lockdown.

Five Valleys traderStroud shoppers can pick up everything they need such as fresh bread from The Artisan Baker, meats from Waghorne’s Butchers, fish from Pershores Seafood and Delicatessen produce from Armadeli.

Plenty of food-to-go outlets are also trading through the lockdown, operating a takeaway service for ready-made meal options including Pieminister, Thai 2 Go, Non Solo Pasta, Brody’s Takeout, The Warren and Callaghin’s Kitchen.

The Five Valleys Market will also be welcoming five new, local traders in the coming weeks bringing food options from around the world including South East Asia and South America. A local specialist wine and spirits merchant will also be joining the market with exciting announcements to be made in the coming days.
