Makers' Market returns to Stockton

Monday, August 04, 2014


A popular specialist market selling a wide range of handmade products will be back in Stockton’s Parish Gardens this Saturday, 9 August.

From 10am to 3pm the Makers’ Market will showcase the best in hand-crafted goods from gemstone jewellery to handmade toys, children’s clothes and a range of delicious baked treats.

The market is part of the on-going programme of specialist markets organised by Stockton Council to complement the traditional weekly market. Admission to the market is free and visitors will be able to enjoy live acoustic performances from local musicians supplied by Tees Music Alliance while they shop.

Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Regeneration, said: “We want to further boost the appeal of Stockton as a shopping destination, attracting visitors and shoppers into the town. “We are continuing to bring new and different markets to the town to complement what the traditional market has to offer. The Makers’ Market celebrates all the creative talent we have in the Borough and gives crafters and small businesses the opportunity to sell their wares. The markets really have gone from strength to strength and the shopping experience will be further improved when the specialist traders move to the new dedicated space at the Northern end of the High Street later this year.”
