The Makers Market run markets all over the North West, but each one is unique to the area it’s in, providing a traditional marketplace for stallholders to sell at.
We spoke to market organiser Vicki about what their markets provide for visitors. Check out our Q&A below.

Vicki, how long have you been running The Makers Markets for?
I’ve been running them for 12 years now.
Our markets bring together independent artisans, makers, bakers, crafters, performers and various businesses to create brilliant, local community markets that run on a monthly basis.
What is your newest market, and what makes it special?
We’ve ventured into Liverpool this year, with the Royal Albert Dock Makers Market and Cains Brewery. We love Liverpool; the people, the vibrancy of the city, and meeting so many local makers and creators there.
What is your favourite market that you’ve ever run?
Honestly, I love them all! Firm favourites are Knutsford, Cheadle, West Didsbury, and Quayside Media City. But I truly do love them all, and love that each one is different and reflects the town it’s in.
Why should people visit your markets?
12 years ago I set out to make our markets a rounded event experience, different to other markets at the time. We love giving a full experience, not just a set of stallholders, but creating a great market atmosphere.
We love showcasing music and the local community, having activities for little ones to enjoy, and all of our markets are an experience.
You’ll see more experiences moving forward at our markets, and we have lots planned for 2023!
