Traders of Tomorrow
The market also features 'traders of tomorrow' giving students from Chichester College Group an opportunity to sell their hand made products.
Gjunele Manafova, a student from the college, who makes her own jewellery under the brand Sol D'or was delighted with her first market experience:
"The market was very special day for me as it was my very first time selling anything on the market that I made myself. It was a brilliant experience to interact with people and hear their compliments regards of my handmade products that lifted my spirit to continue do what I like.
I really enjoyed this event and I think it's a great opportunity for new small business owners to test their ideas on the public with the markets help."
Street food and entertainment
Visitors can also enjoy some delicious street food and a range of entertainment as well as music and dance performances - It's more than a market!

Previous stallholder and visitor experiences
Here is what some of our previous traders and visitors have to say:
"Attended the craft market on Sunday at Chichester. Would like to say I thought it was fabulous and had something for every age group."
"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to participate in the first Cross Market & More. It was a great experience for our small business, and we are very much looking forward to the next one. Please let us know the dates as soon as you have them. On a more personal note, I thought it was amazing to see the city centre so alive after what we all went through these last 18 months or so."
"What a great day it was !!! So many people were saying what a fabulous idea it was, and that it should be held more often."
"I was a stall holder at The Cross Market and More with Petworth Pop Up and I just wanted to say how wonderful I found the whole experience and thank you so much for having me. I had the best day, it was only my 3rd market and it was so lovely to finally get out there and get the feedback and sales I really needed to help get my little lockdown business off the ground and up and running. The people of Chichester are so friendly and encouraging. I had a lot of my customers asking when I would be back which is great. I thought the whole event was very well organised and made it very easy for me being my first solo market."
