A variety of traders will offer everything from original artworks – including paintings, pastel and pencil art – to quirky one-off items of jewellery, mosaics, ceramics, cushions, Christmas decorations, lampshades, soaps and bath salts.

Eco-friendly alternatives to mainstream products will include hand-crafted bags made from reclaimed or recycled saddles, sofas, boot leather and tyre inner tubes, plus fabric aprons, children’s tipis and reusable fabric gift wraps for consumers with a conscience.

Support local at this humble alternative to the commercial high street, and buy affordable pieces direct from the artists themselves.

While you’re there enjoy hot beverages and delicious homebaked goods by the team behind Apple Café, a popular eaterie at the walled West Acre Gardens nearby.
