Artisan Lovers

Independent Street organise the best artisan markets in the North West - loads of amazing variety, activities for the little ones, great music & atmosphere and just a real pleasure to visit! Highly recommend a visit to any/all of their markets for fantastic handmade quality goods.

Fantastic first market in Great Sankey today, great variety of stalls plus everything felt very safe and Covid compliant, a fabulous addition to the local community. Thank you to the organisers & stall holders for all their hard work.

Had a really enjoyable time today at the woodies market - stalls a plenty and bought some gift ideas plus met friends, neighbours and colleagues - excellent community event - well done to all involved.

The market was filled with sweet treats, great food including delicious olives, cheesecakes, fudge, halloumi, pittas and so much more. Along with local gin, coffee, collectables and lots of unique products. It was good to see is many people doing what they can to support independent street businesses and producers in the area. I had a chat with some of the stall holders and it was really interesting to hear all about their products and how they got started. A colourful lively addition to the local scene and it’s great to see what Independent Street are doing.

The markets in Colne were brilliant! Could it be a monthly thing having all these wonderful artisans grace our town? It really bought back memories of how the market was when I was a child and was lovely to see a real buzz back in the town.

What a lovely friendly place to visit had a lovely wander and bought lots of lovely treat, we came over from Yorkshire! Drawn by the lovely cakes you posted!
