Market Hosts

"We're proud to host our Curated markets, which always feature a choice of creative, friendly and unique businesses"

Curated by Dapper & Suave began life as Handpicked for Dorking, a showcase for local talent who shared our passion for their business.

 

These indoor and occasional outdoor events are well publicised on local listings sites and our social media, under our combined Dapper & Suave brand.

We really care about the people who exhibit and want to give them a platform to shine and sell what they make. We create social media countdowns for each event to spotlight their businesses and get customers aware, excited and ready to shop in person.

Customer service is vital to what we do and we believe in making sure that this is offered by choosing creative, unique and of course friendly people who share this ethos.
