A MONTHLY town centre arts and crafts market is growing in popularity according to its organisers.
The market is run on the third Saturday of every month in the Exchange, off Surrey Street, in Old Town, Croydon.
The market is backed by the Croydon Portas Team and the independent Green Croydon group.
The third market held on Saturday attracted traders selling jewellery, pottery and art works.
Paul Collins from the Portas team said: "We are really pleased with the way it is going. It is working on a number of levels.
"We see the arts and crafts as being complementary to what it offered in Surrey Street market on a Saturday.
"It is also opening up opportunities for people involved in arts and crafts who never thought of trading in a market."
He added: "It is also very pleasing that we are able to bring some more life into the Exchange area."
