Eleven new food business start-ups in the Woking area sold their produce this week at a Christmas Market for the local community.
The Lighthouse Christmas Market coincided with the end of a Business Start-Up course delivered by Enterprise Cube and Thames Valley Housing at the central Woking venue. Many of the stallholders on the day were selling their food to the public for the first time.
There was a wide range of cuisine on offer, ranging from Korean, Malaysian and Chinese food to artisan breads, cakes and vegan options.
Rebecca Jespersen, Director at The Lighthouse said: “It’s been a delight to work with TVH and Enterprise Cube, and Tuesday was an enormously fun and festive success.”
Jamie Hutchinson, Business Opportunities Officer at Thames Valley Housing said: “The Lighthouse Christmas market was a fantastic event for both our entrepreneurs and the local community, with a steady flow of customers throughout the day.”
