Our Artisan Summer Market is Popping Up Soon!

The food is almost ready.

And, we’ve had a jolly good word with the weather to ensure that this year’s artisan summer pop-up market is as fantastic as it can be!

Being held in the grounds of The Deer Park from this Thursday (19th) until Saturday 22nd, we’re so looking forward to seeing as many people as possible.

But what’s so important about this weekend is the shop local, support local message.

Local businesses are at the heart of our communities, and following the challenging 18 months that they’ve had, we want to give back to support their come back.

And we know you won’t be disappointed.

Free to attend, you are all cordially invited to browse the curated collections of [handcrafted pottery, illustrations, clothing, jewellery, and other goods from our vendors.

Safely spread across the farm, the stalls will allow visitors to meander around the market stalls in an avenue setting, all set against our stunning countryside.

And while you’re with us, be sure to take a stroll and browse through The Deer Park’s charming food hall, fashion boutiques and homeware collections, which will be open throughout the duration of the market.

Lesley Prince, The Deer Park’s founder, comments: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be hosting our first large-scale artisan market after so long. We have lots of local stall holders selling a variety of beautiful crafts and gifts, and we just know it will be the perfect place for people to come together again safely and pick up some truly unique items for themselves or for loved ones. It’s an event not to be missed!”
