Genuine Jersey Artisans’ Markets return to St Aubin this Saturday, 22 April, offering visitors and locals a variety of local crafts, produce and entertainment.
For the first time this year we are opening up the Parish Hall so will have stalls both inside and outside and stallholders will also be trading for an extra hour from 9am - 4pm.
The artisans’ markets, which are sponsored by insurance company Islands, will feature some of Jersey’s most talented producers, artists and craftspeople. This Saturday will see 30+ stallholders displaying their wares and all products being sold by Genuine Jersey Members will have been made, reared, grown or caught on island.
Genuine Jersey Chief Executive John Garton said: “The first of our Artisans’ markets is always a fantastic time, as we get to see so many of our Members in one place and discover what they’ve been working on throughout the last few months. This Saturday’s market is particularly exciting as it’s the first time we will have traders both inside and outside St Aubin’s Parish Hall, it means we have doubled our space and will have more than 30 traders selling their wares and we’ve also added an extra hour of trading so we’ll be open until 4pm.”
We have to thank Islands, who have kindly sponsored the markets again this year. Islands are a long-standing sponsor member of the Association and understand the importance of giving small local businesses a helping hand. I hope that everyone will embrace our local producers and support the local economy by paying a visit to the markets.”
