New artisan market to be held in Richmond this weekend

An artisan market will be held in Richmond for the first time this weekend.

Little Bird Made are working in partnership with Richmond Town Council to hold their first event in the town.

The market will take in the Market Place on Sunday.

Organisers say more than 60 small businesses will be setting up in the town and showcasing their hand-made goods and locally produced food and drink.

Hazel Morrison, from Little Bird Markets, said: “The market really will have something for everyone young and old, with goods such as homeware, organic skincare, adult and children’s clothing, art, photography, crafts, children’s toys, candles and delicious food and drink.

“This is a great opportunity to start your Christmas shopping, knowing that each purchase is helping to support a small local business.

“Most goods are all handmade so will guarantee that your gift is unique and not available in the shops. Lots of the traders can also do personalised orders, whether that’s a portrait of your pet or a made to order design, so come along and speak to our wonderful traders and discuss your ideas.”

There will also be a selection of hot and cold street food vendors and live entertainment throughout the day.

“Visitors can browse the stalls and enjoy a bite to eat while they listen to the music or grab a coffee while they are walking round.

“This weekend will include hot drinks by Westy Coffee and Softpots, baked potatoes by The Jacket Inn and lots of sweet treats by When The Cake Door Opens, All Spice and Le Petite Gateau.

“Talented local artist Alan Clamp, from AC Landscape Photography will be setting up on Sunday and selling his beautiful images.”

The market will be takin place on Sunday, October 24 from 10am until 3pm.

Little Bird will be back on November 28 with further dates for the monthly market in 2022 will be announced soon.
