After the disappointment of having to cancel Glossop’s 1st Artisan Market of the year, due to the torrential rainfall and consequent fear of flooding, hundreds of shoppers are expected to flock back to the Market Town of Glossop, Derbyshire for this popular monthly Artisan Market.

Now firmly recognised as one of the regions favourite monthly events, Glossop’s Artisan Market will celebrate the delayed start of its Artisan season on Saturday 9th March 2019, where bargain hunters from far and wide will grab the opportunity to see more than 30 local and visiting Crafters and Artisans who’ll gather to showcase their handmade goods, food products and original artworks on Glossop’s traditional Outdoor Market Square.

The start of the town’s Artisan Market season is a signal to shoppers and visitors to get out and sample some of the best arts, crafts, up-cycled and unique products from talented Artisans from right across the region.

The newly scheduled Artisan Market will be on the 13th APRIL 2019 and will continue on the second Saturday of every month at Glossop’s Outdoor Market right up to Christmas.

“This Artisan Market is sure to be a bumper one with a great mix of new and returning Artisans who will be presenting their handmade goods throughout the year,” said Colin Deeley, Glossop Markets Superintendent, who added, “And from forward bookings, it’s wonderful to see so many returning crafters, artists and foodies, who have become firm favourites with many of the town’s shoppers and who have gained tremendous value in connecting personally with their customers as well as fellow Artisans.”

On the day shoppers will see everything from wood carvings, soft furnishings and tailor made clothing, handmade jewellery, artisan glass ware, delicious food, crafted beers and much more.

Colin concluded, “With traditional town centre markets facing strong competition from out-of-town shopping centres, together with an increasing number of National Discount Stores and Supermarkets’, the monthly Glossop Artisan Market event, with its ever changing range of creative vendors, provides shoppers from far and near with a great and much needed alternative to the repetitive everyday shopping offer, by meeting customer exact needs.”

“Entry as always is free so why not come along and see what is on offer?”

Don’t forget to put big makers on your calendars for the 2nd Saturday in the month to visit Glossop’s Artisan Markets.

The Artisan Market opens on Saturday 13th APRIL 2019 between 9am and 4pm. And after you’ve filled your shopping bags with bargains – why not drop into one of Glossop’s many cafés for coffee and cakes; try a beer at one of the town’s micro-pubs or go for a full blown delicious meal!

If you can’t make it to one of Glossop’s Artisan Market events – There’s a thrice-weekly covered market in the Market Hall next to the Town Hall every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
