From the Vault: Baby Peddler
As we all know by now, Peddler Market is today one of the city’s most popular social events, consistently bringing together thousands of Sheffielders through a shared appreciation of good food, music, drinks, art and independent traders showcasing their wares.
Towards the end of last year Peddler celebrated its 6th birthday by doing what they do best: throwing a big ol’ bash down at their 92 Burton Road gaff. It has become something of a local institution, especially since moving to its bigger Kelham Island venue back in 2015, but some people may not recall the first few events it hosted down on Arundel Street – then a much more understated affair with a handful of local food traders, some live music, and a couple of hundred people (and dogs, see below) in attendance.
Despite its smaller stature, it was still clear from the positive vibes at these events that the organisers were onto something. Back in 2015, local photographer Ellie Grace popped down to cover one of these early events for her Exposed photoblog ‘Sheffield: Through the Lens’, catching a few lovely shots of babbeh Peddler looking cute as in the sunshine.
See you at the next one once this has all blown over, eh?
