The Borough Basket Street Market
Fill up your basket at borough’s new street market!
An exciting and unique new street market which aims to help small and independent businesses bounce back from the pandemic in the town centre’s historic heart.
Basingstoke’s Top of the Town will be filled with unique locally-made and handcrafted goods and delicious food as part of the new Borough Basket Street Market, taking place on the last Friday of each month. The first market took place on 30 July and the next one is scheduled for Friday 24 September from 11am to 5.30pm.
Using funding from the government’s Welcome Back Fund, the new market is part of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s work to encourage shoppers to return to the town centre and support the borough’s economic recovery.
Building on the success of the borough’s first online marketplace, The Borough Basket, the new market will give 20 local small and independent retailers an opportunity to sell their goods each month, with new retailers encouraged to come forward each month.
The Borough Basket Street Market is currently planned for the following dates:
- Friday 24 September
- Friday 29 October
- Friday 26 November

The Borough Basket platform was set up to support small and independent businesses by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, The Designlab and partners through the Love Basingstoke group, and is supported by IncuHive Business Incubation services who assists shop owners with business advice.
