The second-ever ‘Marina Artisan Market’ took place on Sunday 26th September 2021 (10am-4pm) at Nantwich Marina & Canal Centre on Chester Road in Nantwich.
The market featured a range of artisan styles and arts, along with general traders, and takes place on a fortnightly basis.
Stall holders were Baked by Gill, Apold Apothecary Handmade Soaps & Candles, Art on the cut, Mere & Meadow, Drink or draw, Lesley’s Crochets, Phil’s prints, Fiona’s Fairy Doors, Angie’s crystals and Fiona Williams art.
Singer-songwriter & guitar player, Henry Myles, once again entertained visitors and stall holders.
There was free car parking and the adjacent Waterside Café Nantwich was popular with attendees.
The market was organised by Harvey, who is the son of local artist Tony Denton. Harvey also runs ‘The Marina Gallery’ gallery-shop, a single storey wooden building which recently opened at Nantwich Canal Centre, to sell Tony’s original hand painted artwork.
Harvey, Marina Artisan Market event organiser, said: “I’m absolutely delighted with the feedback from visitors and stall holders, and the community continues to grow. Hopefully, the Nantwich Marina Artisan Market will find a place and be a part of the towns beating heart.”
The next ‘Marina Artisan Market’ takes place on Sunday 10th October 2021 (10am-4pm).
