You got to love a market, especially knowing you’re getting top quality products and supporting local businesses. Luckily, Liverpudlians can do just that with The Makers Market returning to Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock this weekend.
The Makers Market celebrates local independents and takes place at a number of different locations throughout the year such as Southport, Chester, Warrington, Preston and Manchester’s Northern Quarter, to name a few. However, this market will be pitching up at Albert Dock this Sunday (July 3) and will showcase a whole host of food, drink, and art.
The market will give the people of Liverpool the chance to purchase some local farm produce, as well as artisan breads and speciality cheeses, all produced and sourced by local traders. Some food producers we’ve got our eye include pies and cakes from Pudding & Pie North West, artisan sausage rolls from Ross’s Rolls, and the finest cheese from The Cheese Wheel.
Those with a sweet tooth can take their pick from an array of treats from the likes of Desserts by Dre, Cheshire Cheesecakes and The Doughnuteers, with each of the stallholders on hand to talk about their knowledge and passion behind their products.
Other traders include pet accessories store Ernie & Theo or Goody Paws Ltd, and vegan friendly outdoor clothing brand, Urban Bear. And if you’re search of the perfect gift or looking to spruce up your home with some art, you’ll find the likes of intricate gold jewellery from Grey Collective, football prints from Homeless Ghost Prints and even exotic oil scents sourced from the Middle East available at Azafia at The Makers Market too.
Many of the stalls are proud to offer eco-friendly goods for the sustainable shopper, such as cacti presented in up-cycled bottles from Crabby Crafts, unique driftwood designs from Indriftic and sustainable luxury home fragrances from VRJJ Candles. Over 50 different traders will be present at this market at Albert Dock, which is taking place for the first time this year.
The Makers Market is free to attend, and will be open from 11am until 4pm. For more information head to their Facebook page here.
