Lewes Craft Market:

first Saturday of every month

Now in our second year the Lewes Craft market is a thriving hub of activity in the iconic Market Tower, bringing together a varied selection of artists and makers within 30 miles of Lewes.

.

 

Held on the first Saturday of the month trading from March to December - 10am to 4pm - we offer affordable, high quality hand made craft goods.

.

At each market there will be a selection of ceramics, silver jewellery, textiles, felt, home decor, art work, cards, prints and accessories. The market offers the opportunity for customers to meet the makers and have bespoke items made for them. You can also enjoy a lovely cup of fresh tea or coffee while you're there.

.

This year we are planning more entertainment during the day and have a local choir joining us in April plus some Morris Men booked for May. There will be a pop up photo 'booth' in the White Room where you can take pictures of your children with a variety of props.

The Market Year: March 2013 to February 2014

 

 

The Market Year, was launched in March 2013. Each month, throughout the year, a free booklet was published featuring a profile of a local producer and the food they supply. It also gave tips on what’s available in season and offered carefully chosen recipes using locally produced food.

 

It's all here, on the website. Have a rummage through our collection of stunning photographs - taken by Carlotta Luke - featuring local producers and their work...

Our stallholders can proudly tell you where and how their foods were farmed or processed as well as give you cooking advice and recipes.
