How can I find Makers Markets near me?
Pedddle is here to help you find Makers Markets in your local area.
We love finding markets across the UK for you to discover, and local Makers Markets are a great place to start.
Markets are all around us but finding them and not missing them can be tricky, as they are often on just once a month or even less!
Luckily, Pedddle is here to help. Our directory of markets and their makers has a useful search function, so you can search both by date and / or location, to find events and markets in your local area.
If we don’t have something this time, keep checking back as we are gaining new market organisers and stallholders all the time, in all areas of the UK.
What’s in a name?
Not all markets are aptly named Makers Markets – look out for Artisan Markets, Farmer’s Markets or Crafts Markets too – some of the best markets we’ve visited have been called a name related to their location or type, but aren’t necessarily filled with just one type of product.
For example, Rode Hall Farmer’s Market also has brilliant craft, clothing and artwork sections, as well as the traditional ‘Farmer’s Market’ produce and food. Many craft markets also sell food and drink, and so on.
Another great example of this is Treacle Market in Macclesfield – they definitely don’t sell treacle! It is full to the brim with craft, food and vintage products, as well as some great gifts – it’s a truly lovely event to visit.
Here are some of our favourite Makers Markets:
The awesome FarGo Village hosts a selection of Makers Markets throughout the year, amongst their line-up of ever-incredible events.
