Over 30 Artisan retailers will showcase a range of independent handmade products for shoppers at Hyde’s second Artisan Market on Saturday 5th May 2018.

Taking place from 9.00am till 3.00pm, the market will once again feature the return of many of the regions popular local artists, crafters and designers who, make, create and sell fantastic handmade gifts and products, as well as quite a few new faces who will be exhibiting for the first time. These include Card Makers, pretty Decoupage Jars , Artisan Cakes and Breads , Wax Melts and a range of up-cycled items.

Adding to the markets atmosphere and raising the shopping levels to fever pitch will be one of the most requested musical acts from last season.

Hyde’s monthly Artisan Market; now in its third successful year, has not only grown in stall holder and visitor numbers, but has developed commercially and in local popularity too! In fact many loyal shoppers and visitors refer the monthly event as ‘The Best Artisan Market in Tameside!’

Julia Harrison, Chair of Hyde’s Town Team, spoke about how, since the creation, staging and implementation of the Artisan market, the monthly event dramatically transforms the Civic Square from a mid-week wilderness, highlighting what can be done when there is a strong will and drive to produce a vibrant retailing environment. The success is purely down to Karen Dorney, her supporters and all her talented team who have recognised an opportunity to give local shoppers exactly what they want.

Karen Dorney, said, “Once again we have been totally overwhelmed with the number of local traders wanting to take part in this year’s markets. It’s a real pity we cannot accommodate them all. However, we have developed a system that successfully mixes some new faces with a number of firm favorites, who joined, and supported many of our markets last year; this makes for an ever changing shopping offering that means there really is something for everyone!”

So tell all your friends, families and neighbours and discover just what Hyde’s talented crafters can offer you.

Come along and on Saturday 5th May, from 9.00am till 3.00pm and enjoy a day’s shopping at the very accessible Hyde Artisan Market.
