Glossop’s popular monthly Artisan Market maybe small in comparison to some of those who feature in lager towns, but nevertheless the town’s speciality market event is one not to be missed.

Staged on the town’s Market Square on the 2nd Saturday of the month, the event offers a fun filled, bargain hunters paradise, where many carefully selected local food producers, artists and craftspeople gather in one place to bring you their fabulous artworks and a huge variety of home-made products; and once you’ve sampled the unique and sometimes quirky items on sale, you can pop right in to the indoor market for other culinary delights that include sweets and treats, chocolate, cakes, artisan and speciality breads, home-made jams, chutney and pickles and fresh and cooked quality meats and pies.

Also, in the indoor market you’ll find all the traditional vendors there too; selling everything from, Fine Art and one-off tee-shirts, to antiques, toys and games, hardware products, contemporary furnishings, haberdashery, beauty products and gifts.
If you’ve been abroad recently, just remember the atmosphere you experienced in one of the lovely continental markets you may well have visited in some small traditional village; where local residents all support their local producers. Where it’s hard to resist that delicious mix of foods as well as a fine selection of bespoke crafts and local products for you to choose from and enjoy. …Well Glossop Market is the quintessential English equivalent!

If you believe in ‘Shopping Local ‘and want to see more enterprising individuals and local producers flourish, make sure you pay a visit to Glossop’s monthly Artisan on Saturday the 10th August. You’ll be glad you did!
If you can’t make it to Glossop’s Artisan Market August event next week – There’s a thrice-weekly covered market in the Market Hall next to the Town Hall every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
