A month ago, the first FarGo Makers Market was wrapping up- and what a weekend! Thousands joined us to welcome Spring in with some true FarGo artisanal style- and the sun almost came out too!
Shoppers were greeted at the Spring Makers Market with live music, cakes, and all the colours of Spring! We had some of the best makers, designers and artists from the local area, ready to welcome people to FarGo. With everything from artisan jewellery, ceramics, artworks, woodwork, and everything in between, it was an independent shoppers dream. It was all accompanied by Adam Kibble, and The Gloria Sunset Duo, playing everything from pop classics to rock’n’roll.
The streetfood was delicious! Cornography made everyones favourite corn on the cob, corn dog bites, and amazing nachos. We also had some fantastic vegan desserts from Cake Doctor– just what you need after a long morning shopping!
All the stalls were so good it’s hard to pick favourites. Some of the highlights had to include Seasonal Souls with her beautiful Spring inspired artwork, the fab fun jewellery from Frilly Industries, the amazingly delicate ceramics from Rolling Roses, and the most adorable tiny plants from The Cluttery– not forgetting the amazing psychedelic llama from Andrew J Mason, and the cutest pet rocks from Pie Art!
The Summer Makers Market is coming!
We’re very excited to announce the Summer Makers Market is coming! We’ve got the Summer edition coming up on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July- and we’re so excited! We’ve got more fab traders lined up. Some are returning for another fun weekend, and some brand new to FarGo, so make sure you follow the Facebook event for more details about traders, streetfood and performers!
For a sneak peak, we can reveal we have some fab fudge, concrete jewellery, tiny clay animals and much more from our talented traders, and even more great food from our friends Cornography! Keep you eyes peeled and stay up to date!
See you soon for a stroll in the sunshine!
