St Albans' The Courtyard Café is set to host a regular series of pop up markets.

The first event will take place at the Hatfield Road eatery this Saturday (September 23), and will bring together local producers of a range of crafts.

These crafts include jewellery, macramé, bags and purses among other products.

The Courtyard Café's series of markets follows a successful trial event at the beginning of April.


Saturday's market will be dedicated to Michelle Trigg, who brought her 'Lovedup Reloved' clothing stall to the April event, but has since tragically died.

Michelle was a dedicated supporter of Rickmansworth Foodbank, a charity to which all of Saturday's store holders will donate a per centage of their profit.

The cafe's owner, Jo Kerr, said: "The Courtyard Collective Market last April proved a great success with our regulars as well as drawing in new customers to the cafe.

"It is a unique, fun, shopping event supporting small, local businesses. We look forward to welcoming you again this Saturday.

"Come and have a browse while enjoying a great cup of coffee, house baked cakes, brunch or lunch between 9am and 3pm."
