Plenty of crafts and unique items as Floating Market heads to Coventry Canal Basin this weekend

Tristan Harris 22nd Jun, 2021 Updated: 22nd Jun, 2021   0

A FLOATING market will take place at the Coventry Canal Basin this weekend.

There will be a lot of interesting crafts and unique items on sale on the trading boats on both Saturday and Sunday, June 26 and 27.

The market is run by the Roving Canal Traders Association which has been in existence for some years.

It held its first ever floating market in 2013 and, after the success, more regular markets were planned.




In 2014, eight took place and the concept continued to grow. But, by October 2016, the team decided to take a well-deserved break.

By the end of 2017 there had been 14 RCTA Floating Markets during the year all over the country – from Chester in the north to Berkhamsted in the south.


The comeback of the floating market was scheduled for last year but plans were scuppered by Coronavirus.

Now finally, with social distancing in place, the traders will be back on the water.
