The celebrated Islands’ Genuine Jersey Markets will return to St Aubin this weekend, offering visitors a variety of local crafts, produce and entertainment.
The artisans’ markets, which are sponsored by Islands will provide shoppers with the unique opportunity to explore the very best talented producers, artists and craftspeople that Jersey has to offer. A variety of stallholders will be displaying their wares, many of which are handmade or homemade on the Island and which display the distinctive Genuine Jersey logo, guaranteeing their local provenance.
The markets will be held monthly throughout the summer in St Aubin, creating a lively atmosphere in one of Jersey’s most scenic locations.
Genuine Jersey Chief Executive John Garton said: “There is currently a lot of love on the Island for local markets following the huge success of our Simply Christmas and Simply Spring events. We hope to maintain people’s enthusiasm for supporting local artisans and producers by offering them high quality gifts that are both different and unique.
“With new members constantly joining our community, there is always the chance to purchase new, exclusive produce and to discover exciting new creative ventures.”
Jim Purkiss, Sales and Marketing Director at Islands Insurance, said: “We are proud to be sponsoring this year’s Genuine Jersey markets once again since they are such a wonderful reflection of Jersey life and a great addition to our events calendar. Islands has been supporting Genuine Jersey members with tailored insurance for over ten years now, ensuring members can obtain the public liability insurance necessary to host a stall at markets and craft fairs, at the lowest possible rate.
“I hope that everyone will embrace our local producers and support the local economy by paying visit to these markets.”
