Craft Markets are a chance to show and share local talent

The first craft markets of the 2024 season were held at Tarbert Community Centre last weekend.

Local artisans braved the weather on Friday and Saturday to put their wares on show. There was a wide selection of gifts and treats to choose from, from creators from

across Harris and Lewis.

The markets are held regularly throughout the summer months (usually on a Friday) and add a new dimension to activities on offer in the village, proving popular with

both residents and tourists exploring Tarbert.

There are plenty of gift ideas, including jewellery and keyrings, original Harris Tweed creations and toys, as well as paintings, photography and sweet treats, jams

and pickles.

The fees that stall-holders pay for their tables go directly to the Community Centre and help to fund its work and upkeep – benefitting other community groups and

organisations who use it.

Local organisations also have the opportunity to host a café at the markets, raising additional funds for their good cause.

“It was a cracking start to the market season with both Friday and Saturday full with stallholders and visitors,” said organiser Jocelyn Corderoy.

“We have several new stallholders this year and the quality of crafts and produce is incredibly high. There was a real buzz as we met for the first time in three months and

caught up on news.”

“Seeing returning customers was exciting as well as welcoming new ones. We are really looking forward to the season ahead.”

The next craft markets will be on Friday 26th April, Friday May 10th,

24th and 31st.
