Changes Start with... THE SPARK "at the heart of the alternative west country"

Marketplace ads


Do you remember the old comics with ads at the back for X-ray specs, Venus fly traps and whoopee cushions?

Our publisher John had a vision - he thought we could re-create that fun, quirky vibe with interesting ads for specialist or unusual and innovative shops and products that would make our readers look twice. So marketplace was born!
