Independent Seller’s Market Cafe

Community Bees runs a Market Cafes at St Crux in York providing affordable food and drink in a friendly, safe space for people who might otherwise feel lonely or socially isolated to come and relax in. 

There is always someone to talk to who goes out of their way to make everyone feel included and welcome. 

Independent sellers can book a table at a Market Cafe to sell their produce and goods, creating a nice enterprise opportunity for them and a stimulating environment for the cafe users. Tables are £25 for a six foot table, £30 for two.  

Any money raised by the market is used to provide activities that reduce isolation and loneliness as well as supporting the most disadvantaged people within the community.
