Tripps' Vibrant Debut at Tiverton's Farmers Market: A Scent-Sational Success!
Tripps embarked on an exciting venture at Tiverton Pannier Market's Farmer's Market this past weekend. Despite the challenging weather conditions with the ongoing wet and windy spells across the UK, we braved the elements for a remarkable pop-up experience. This incredible opportunity came our way after our enthusiastic participation in the Mid Devon Show. Invited with open arms, we eagerly set up our stall at the charming Tiverton Pannier Market, ready to share our exquisite range of artisanal wax melts, candles, reed diffusers, and gift boxes with the local community.
Setting up alongside fellow traders, we arrived bright and early at 7 am to prepare our stall. While gazebos were restricted due to the gusty winds, we were fortunate to be given sheltered space. The event showcased a vibrant array of local produce and a diverse selection of items, including plants and delightful products.
Our New Luxury Botanical Wax Melts proved to be a major hit, quickly flying off the shelves. Among the crowd favourites were our wax melt snap bars, offering an assortment of captivating fragrances. Did you know we offer an impressive range of over 45 fragrances to choose from, catering to various preferences?
The historical significance of Tiverton Market is truly remarkable. With its roots dating back to 740 AD, it holds a legacy of over 1277 years. Different parts of the town hosted distinct markets, each specialising in specific goods. From the sale of lambs and livestock at The Lamb Inn to dairy products and produce on Fore Street, Gold Street, and Angel Hill, the market's history weaves a rich tapestry.
The establishment of Tiverton's Pannier Market building in 1830 marked a pivotal moment. Over the years, the market evolved to accommodate changing times, including the addition of a Bull Ring, Cattle Shed, and Stock Pens in 1959. While cattle used to be "driven" through the town's streets to the market until 1971, the historical significance remains woven into the fabric of the community.
Market Charters granted by English monarchs have played a crucial role in shaping Tiverton's market landscape. King Henry III's Market Charter of 1257 authorised the town to hold weekly markets on Mondays and Saturdays, as well as annual fairs. Oliver Cromwell's Charter of 1655 further refined the market's operations, shifting market day to Tuesdays to respect the sanctity of the Sabbath.
Tiverton's market heritage is a testament to its enduring spirit and its role in fostering community connections. As we reflect on our recent pop-up at Tiverton Pannier Market's Farmer's Market, we're reminded of the profound legacy that continues to inspire and unite us.
Stay tuned for more updates, events, and insights as we embark on this exciting journey. We invite you to explore our array of scents and products, embodying the essence of Tiverton's vibrant market history and its enduring commitment to quality and community.
