NEW Barnstaple Craft Market
on Sunday 14 June a new monthly craft market will be starting in Barnstaple Guildhall to compliment the regular Real Food Market. All the crafts on show will be handmade in North Devon, it’s a showcase for the best of local makers in a unique setting. It will be the place to spot something new, original and locally made. Barnstaple Pannier Market and Guildhall really will be the place to visit on the second Sunday of every month.
Event organiser Dion Sears says “The Guildhall is a fantastic space right above the pannier market so we hope people will come into town and enjoy visiting both markets. Real food and real art, the perfect day out in my mind.”
Joint event promoter Sam Baines of Furniture Magpie “We have a fantastic list of makers and artisans for this first market in the Guildhall, join us for a wonderful show of local talent.”
All the makers have been carefully selected from a vast array of applications, the plan is to have different makers and artists selling at each market so that there will always be something new to see. Crafts on sale will range from prints and pictures, textiles and jewellery, illustration, glass and natural bath products. Each month there will be a small subsidized stall reserved for new makers and recent graduates. The markets will be themed to ensure a wide range of different crafters are attracted to exhibit, there will be homewares in July and a celebration of the coast in August.
The first market will run on Sunday 14 June 10.30am – 4pm in Barnstaple Guildhall which can be accessed from Butcher Row or the door inside the Pannier Market.
