• No two projects are the same

At The Market Place, it's all about teamwork. Our team, working with you and your team. Because, although it's a cliché (forgive us this one - we generally try to avoid clichés), we really are stronger together. No-one knows your business as well as you do. So, our way is to embrace all your expertise, listen to your ideas, add more of our own, stir, and then pour the results into an agreed action plan that's fizzing with energy.

So, whether it's a full marketing package you need, or skilled reinforcements dedicated to specific areas, we promise you this: The Market Place is completely trustworthy, highly effective and brimming with enthusiasm. That's why many of our clients have been with us for years and have become friends. Because they trust us with their business. That's a real privilege and one we never take for granted.

Hospitality consultancy

With decades of experience both front and back of house, Tracy Carroll, Sheila Benson and The Market Place team will leave no stone unturned when it comes to maximising the potential of your pub, restaurant, hotel or café.


Press, PR, emails, social media, websites, good old word of mouth ... the modern world insists businesses communicate over a multitude of platforms. Don't worry, we can sort it for you, in your voice, your way.


Seeing your product or story in newspapers and magazines is exciting, and editorial can be even more powerful than paid-for advertising. Ask us how we can help leverage the power of the media to build your brand.

Content creation

In this noisy world, it's not easy to be heard, and far harder to create an attentive audience. You can't make people listen, of course - but you can let us help you create compelling content that they will love to read - and share.

Food & drink consultancy

Sometimes it takes a fresh pair of eyes to pinpoint how to take your business forwards, or to help you establish a new one whilst avoiding pitfalls. Our farm shop, deli and new product consultancy service helps you do just that.


With years of experience and collective buying power, you can be assured we know what we're doing when it comes to placing advertising. We will formulate your campaign, negotiate the best deals and even design your adverts.

Social media

We can completely manage your social media as part of the marketing mix, or work with you and your team 'on the ground' to ensure social media is working hard and delivering on objectives.

Crisis management

This is the service that everyone hopes they will never need. But the unexpected does happen, and it pays to be prepared. It also really helps to have expert guidance to help avoid a crisis turning into a disaster.

Marketing management

Appoint us as your marketing department, managing all activities, or draft us in to reinforce your in-house team. We can lighten your load during busy times, providing highly capable, trustworthy help when you need it.

Print and distribution

From leaflet drops (expertly executed - they work!) to marvellous menus and eye-catching banners, you can trust us with all your print and distribution needs; we ensure you enjoy excellent value for money, too.


Professional copy is a powerful tool. At The Market Place, we help you find your voice and then apply it across your brand - emails, leaflets, surveys, menus and, of course, skilfully-optimised website content.


Whether you need a new website, a spruce up of your existing one or on-going management, it's reassuring when your marketing people know their way around your meta data. At The Market Place, we're good with websites.
