Information for Customers
If you are looking for quality hand made artisan goods as a gift or present for a friend of family member or just a treat for yourself, MarketCraft are pleased to offer a range and variety of the highest quality items at regular events.
All producers and stall holders meet the requirements of the terms of MarketCraft to be able to attend as well as the exacting regulations of Trading Standards.
Producers take their businesses seriously, and as such, important things like traceability and provenance of goods is high on the list of accountability of businesses.
This ensures that you can rely on the producer being able to explain their skills to you as well as speaking to those responsible for the sourcing of all the items available on the day.
Food items all comply to strict standards of production and you may be surprised to find just how much money can be saved on a regular shopping bill by a visit to a farmers' market!
Some producers will import the raw materials, others use recycled items, others still create their products from wholly locally sourced goods - so unlike the experience of a store selling mass prodcued items, a MarketCraft event gives you the chance to really get to know the producer and you can be assured of an enjoyable and value for money visit to the events.
Hand crafted goods are really good value for money too, and the fun of finding some unique and cleverly created gifts - as well as really useful objects too! - is all part of the event.
The range and variety of goods is very wide - you could find for example:
Hand made cards
