Farmers’ and Craft Market

Discover Gainsborough’s markets! Offering the best in fresh, local, homemade and handmade produce from a variety of traders at Gainsborough’s monthly Farmers’ and Craft Market taking place every second Saturday of the month. 

Gainsborough’s monthly Farmers’ & Craft Market is held on the second Saturday of every month and was relocated to the town centre last year as part of a joint initiative coordinated by Marshall’s Yard with West Lindsey District Council.

Previously located on Market Street, the market will now move just a few feet into the Market Place within Gainsborough town centre – just a minutes walk from Marshall’s Yard. The additional space within the Market Place will better allow for social distancing ensuring a fully safe shopping environment for both traders and customers. The market offers the best in fresh, local, homemade and handmade produce from a variety of local traders outdoors in the fresh air.

For a full list of traders attending the next market please see below:

Please be aware that due to covid-19, not all traders may be present at the market. For regular updates please follow us on Facebook.

A Stab in the Woola stab in the wool

Needle Felted decorative items and pictures.

A year ago I bought a needle felting  kit from a well known high street craft shop and I was immediately hooked. Needle Felting is now a big part of my life.

I attend a few markets/craft fairs throughout the year plus I am also passing on my love for this craft running workshops are in East Yorkshire and from The Old Forge Florists at Uncle Henrys, Grayingham.
