Arkwright's Artisan Markets Cromford 2019

Arkwrights Artisan Market is a monthly market which will take place in the beautiful setting of Cromford Mill Yard, with a focus on Derbyshire Artisans and Producers.  Cromford Mills are keen to provide a showcase and spotlight for the high quality makers and producers within the County and become recognised at a natural home for that talent.

Cromford Mills is an established visitor attraction within the area already welcoming an steady Sunday footfall of local and tourist visitors.  The market is designed to provide an affordable opportunity for artists and artisans to trade at a prestige location welcoming both local and tourists  visitors and establishing itself as a the top regular destination market in the area over the next few months.

Part of this plan will involve actively with working with traders to promote and develop the market and we will work hard on reciprocal promotion of artisans attending through our established social media channels to profile not only the market but the experience and giving potential customers the opportunity to ‘Meet the Makers’ and see what’s on offer to help create a real sense of community around the events.  We will also be booking live local bands to enhance the atmosphere at the events themselves and would also like to invite traders to provide short workshops relating to their products if they wish to.

The dates for the market for 2019 are: March 17th, April 21st/22nd, May 19th, June 16th, July 21st, August 18th, September 22nd, October 20th, November 16th/17th

As you’ll see on a couple of occasions we’re holding 2 days Markets and will create additional activities to support those events.

Free parking is available for traders for the events and there are options to bring your own stall or trader from inside our marquee. 

We would love to hear from you if you’re interested in trading at this exciting market.
