‘Camden-style Market’ in Cains Brewery Village will now become the Red Brick Market.
There’s a new name for the most successful and largest independent shopping experience in Liverpool.
Since its opening in March 2018, Red Brick Hangar Market has gone from strength to strength.
The aspiration to keep the local community strong and develop Robert Cains’ old Can Hall into a ‘Mini-Camden of Liverpool’ has worked! And the manifesto of welcoming and supporting independent traders, local artists and start-up business through its doors, bringing a unique and inspiring shopping experience to the Baltic Triangle has really put the market firmly on the map. Coming up to its first year of existence this has led to many success stories and independent shop holders are continuing to thrive.
And as a result of this hard work the curators and owners have made the decision to consolidate the Red Brick Vintage and Red Brick Hangar Market brands into one super brand ‘Red Brick Market’. It has also decided that it will move its Vintage area, currently accessed via the Courtyard entrance on Stanhope Street fully into the Hangar space. This means that from April the access to the Red Brick Market will only be available through its entrance off Parliament street (close to the Peaky Blinders Bar) on the Cains Brewery Village site. The Courtyard will be closed due to redevelopment.
What does this mean for the Vintage section of the Red Brick? The Vintage Traders such as Penningtons, Bessy B, Junky Gibbon and Little India will move into the space in the Old Can Hall offering the Red Brick Market customer a real 360 experience of independent shopping from modern to vintage.
A spokesperson said “we are playing to our strengths and community spirit by combining two concepts into one area. We believe that this will give Liverpool’s residence and visitors a truly unique independent shopping experience. As everything is in one-place we believe that it will provide a better customer experience”
In addition to the stall holders who provide food such as Macro Balance, The Nakery and the Sweet Tooth Bakery there will be the opening of an onsite café but details will be released closer to launch.
