TMR rolls into 2013!


When we started The Market Roll, we never thought we’d have 3 versions of the site before our 2nd birthday! But we just can’t stop thinking of new ways to make TMR better and better!

It’s been a mammoth 24 hours getting the site ready to go live, but we think we’re done!

These are the new features that we hope you’ll love, as much as we do!


Market Directory – dates at a glance

Each market now lists their upcoming date, so you can easily see what’s coming up straight from the market directory page, without clicking on a thing! You can also see how many stalls are attending that market all at a glance.

Market Search – plan ahead!

Without even picking a date or city, you can now quickly see markets that are coming up in the next few days, in your city. Of course, if you’re super organised you can still use the handy city and date picker. The Calendar is now in the main menu.

Stallholder directories – discover more artisans with more pictures!

All stallholders now have 3 images of their work visible in the directory, and all stalls now have bigger pictures. Note to all stalls: now is a great time to update your pics!

Stall profile page – bigger and better

Stallholders now have a super big logo, 6 huge product pictures, contact form and a big visual list of markets attending, so everyone will know exactly where to find them!

Homepage – see who’s handpicked

Now with a MASSIVE handpicked product picture. Premium stallholders have the opportunity now to be handpicked and feature on our homepage for a whole week!

Notice(Me) Board – see recently added dates

We add new market dates to the site all the time! Stallholders and shoppers can now see when new dates have been added to markets by checking out the Notice(me) Board.

We’ve gone mobile!!

We know that you’re not always viewing TMR on your desktop computer. A lot of the time, you’ll be out and about and totally forget the market’s address or what time it was on til!

In fact, our stats say that nearly 50% of all our visitors are viewing on a mobile device (iPad on the couch?). So guess what!!? TMR has been custom designed to be beautifully viewed on tablets, phones and other mobile devices.

Of course, as with all site re-designs there may be a couple of bugs around. So if you find anything on the site that doesn’t quite work as it should, please contact us so we can fix it!

We’d also like to say A BIG thank you for all your support over the last year and a half! We’re so excited at how TMR is growing by the day. We really value your feedback and would love to know what you think of the new design. Just leave a comment below with any thoughts, suggestions or general niceties. Thanks Market Rollers!
