Markets with a heart

LSD, What's the deal?

Lucy in the sky with diamonds? Hallucinogenic drugs? Old money?  Actually, it's just the first initials of the 3 founder Directors and it had the effect we wanted, nobody ever forgot the name.  So, history & mystery aside, the story is, if you are looking for a cool street market to visit this weekend, stall hire for a special event, somewhere different to trade, or even a new start in life!  We are an independent market and event company based in the Midlands UK and we’ve been doing it our way since 1989, specialising in top quality markets & special events that are colourful, safe, well presented, enjoyable, and basically do what it says on the tin.


Making it easy:  We work hard to ensure our markets serve the local community to the highest possible standard and offer the best facilities and working conditions for market traders.  If you are a trader, exhibitor, artist, or just want to have a go and you would like a stall, we make it as easy as we can, see www.lsdpromotions.com/new-traders

We will take your application for a new market and most special events over the phone on a debit or credit card. We operate a GDPR compliant mailing list for traders, simply meaning you get first hand information sent to you whenever we have opportunities you may want to take part in. There are no lengthy contracts that we tie you up to.  

There are basic rules and codes of conduct that we expect on our markets and events ❤️  We are happy if you are ❤️  

Fur Free: All our markets and events are guaranteed fur free, see www.lsdpromotions.com/fur-free-markets

Aims, Dreams, Musings & Local Authorities: We believe in variety on our markets and events and we aim for as many diverse, good quality products as we can, whenever we can, welcoming sellers with fresh organic fruit and veg, the finest essentials, wholesome specialist food & drink products, ecological packaging, fur and cruelty free, handmade, homemade, upcycled, vintage, the list is endless and we love creative, like minded people. ❤️  We encourage traders that buy ingredients and products from companies that do not commission test on animals. We welcome people that make their own products, bakes, crafts, fragrances, making them by hand using little or no preservatives or packaging. We believe in happy people making and selling happy products because it makes our customers happy too. ❤️ We appreciate honesty, transparency, mutual respect, integrity, helping newcomers, individuality, and the right to make mistakes, apologise, learn and start again. 

❤️ We respect our Local Authorities - they have trusted us to come in to the towns & cities they represent.  We believe our markets and events are excellent value.  That we should make a profit and that our customers matter too. ❤️ 

We also believe words like ‘speciality’ ‘finest quality’ 'fresh' and 'organic' have an honest meaning beyond marketing ❤️
