Skincare, food and accessory brands will be on stalls inside and outside the venue – with stalls still available to take if other traders want to join.
Here are the stalls that will be on offer:
Chris Bilsborough, organiser of the event said: “Dutch Barn Artisan Markets started life as a local artisan that I helped organise for my local resident’s association. Since 2021, we’ve hosted six successful markets and a community BBQ, so using the experience I’ve gained, I set myself the challenge of hosting one independently.
“With over 30 traders spanning four areas, both indoors and out, visitors can expect to find a wide range of locally produced goods and handmade Christmas gifts on the day, such as jewellery, vegan skincare and beauty products, artwork, baked goods, books, clothing and much more.
“The venue, Valley Conferencing in Bamber Bridge, also houses its own hidden gem, Valley Coffee, which, weather permitting, is hoping to host a delicious grill. Valley Church will also be showcasing who they are and what they do, and to finish it all off, there are set to be festive touches that will complement the market perfectly, including live music.”
He added: “This new and exciting opportunity will support and promote small businesses and independent traders from the area, which we risk losing if we succumb to the convenience of online shopping.”
