Florence Road Market (see map) is held every Saturday from 9.30am to 1.30pm in One Church courtyard BN1 6DL (spanning part of Southdown Avenue running from Florence Road towards Springfield Road).
The aim is both to sell high quality produce and to make weekly shopping more ethical & communal. A further intention is to create productive roles for people by helping local businesses to develop.
