Lower Stable Street Market (as Applied Research Creative Studio Ltd) is currently going through the review process to become Bcorp certified - a Bcorp meets high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
What does this mean for you?
It shouldn't have a major effect, we have always made an effort to be as accountable and transparent in how we operate the market and have taken this into consideration with our stallholders that join us. We have included a question below on how we could support you in operating 'more sustainably' at the market and would love to receive your thoughts.
