The first Andover Artisan Market of the year will be in the High Street this Sunday (15 March) from 10am – 2pm.
Andover’s Artisan Market will gather on the third Sunday of every month for the rest of the year.
The first market welcomes back firm favourites including The Gin Stall, Mad Bag Lady, Greenfield Pork and Brown Bread. It is also delighted to introduce a host of new traders including Cheese at Its Best, Warrenfield – a local smallholder with varied fresh produce; Sew Confused and Victoria and Isaac – handmade unisex clothes for babies and children. With Mother’s Day in mind you might also want to check out The Sherbet Piglet for lovely sweet treats, Candle Delites or Marcelle K with stunning jewellery for that someone special.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Phil North said: “The first Artisan Market of the year is synonymous with spring and the start of a fresh new year of High Street markets. It is the perfect opportunity to support small producers and artisans and help to keep things local.”
Take some time to wander, soak up the atmosphere, try some locally produced food, and listen to music from local singers Jake Ward from 10am – 12.30pm and Marie Ponting from 12.30pm – 2pm in the Time Ring; the perfect backdrop to a relaxed Sunday shopping experience.
The Artisan Markets are held on the third Sunday of each month throughout the rest of 2020.
