It started in the autumn of 2015 as a Facebook group for local indies, swiftly grew into a buzzy social network and, during last year’s lockdowns, launched a web directory which today lists, supports and promotes 350-plus independent businesses in and around the city.

And now Be Social Cambridge - which operates via tiered membership scheme, starting from a free listing - is hosting a series of pop-up shops to showcase the skills and wares of its members. Running at The Grafton in partnership with Sook, it’s a chance to browse and buy everything from coffee, cakes and bakes to art, antiques and vintage clothes.

On October 6, the line-up will include Prestige Doughnuts, Savannah Village, Moss & Rose and Art Corner by Sandra; on October 13, it’s Shop Charlotte Daisy, HoneyShed Bakery, Rehab Vintage and Cambridge Bell Tents & Tipis; on October 20, Kickstart Coffee, Prestige Doughnuts, Bitesize Bakehouse and Samtique Shop; and on October 27, Fresh Beauty Botanicals, Mayme Angel, Prestige Doughnuts and Treasure Seasons.

Be sure to take a tote: the chances of leaving empty handed are nil.
