Looking For A Unique Gift? Head To Alton Craft Market!
Alton has had a long tradition of markets; the first recorded one was in 1232! With many, many years passing, Alton markets are still going strong and are obviously much loved by local residents.
The Alton Craft Market is well established and one of the most popular in the area. All goods on sale are made by the stall holders and there is a wide range of produce on offer, including cards, pottery, soft furnishings, glass, original photography, wood work, – to name a few. It is the perfect market if you’re looking for unique, quirky and handmade gifts.
It is held at the same time as the Alton Farmers Market, which runs along the length of the High Street. This makes for a very busy day each month! The market is held on the second Saturday of each month from March to December 10am to 3pm, except in August, when it is held on the first Saturday. The craft market is run in conjunction with the Alton Lions with all the stall hire profits donated to local charities. The market venue starts from the Alton High Street end of Cross and Pillory Lane and extends into the traditional Market Square.
Extra Craft Markets are held periodically to coincide with other events in Alton Town Centre, for example, the Jane Austin Week and the Yuletide Festival. All the dates of these are listed on the events list on the Alton Craft Market website: www.altoncraftmarket.co.uk
