The Lincolnshire Makers Market had another successful event at The Sessions House in Spalding

Crowds enjoyed browsing through an array of hand crafted goodies and soaking in the sun at this popular event – which led to many stalls selling out.

The Lincolnshire Makers Market returned for it’s third year at the Sessions House in Spalding at the weekend.

More than 45 makers attended from across Lincolnshire and provided a range of homemade goods. Some of the businesses which attended for the first time included, Recycle R, ColourMe, DE Glass, Sambrini Studio, Wild Fen, Mill Farm Cider, Cakes for Chocoholics, That Woofin’ Dog, Ladybird Pottery, This Broken Art, Felt Mindful and many more.

Visitors also got to enjoy street food vendors, Stamford’s Silly Boy UK, roasted coffee by Jackalope Joe Coffee Co and Lincolnshire churned ice cream from Tuckers Ice Cream.

Due to it’s popularity, some of the stall holders sold out on the day.

Organiser Jodie Mason of Spalding said: “We had a really busy day with lots of visitors.

“There was a great mixture of talent from around Lincolnshire and we chose a huge selection of makers who all had a great day. Nova Macarons and Cakes for Chocoholics both sold out on the day and the Lincolnshire Drizzle Company only had a few bits left – so it was very popular.

“I am really happy with how it went and we really love working with the Sessions House as it’s a really interesting building and it’s just so perfect and quirky.

“It is a really nice event to bring to the town and people always comment on what a nice event it is – I also think it is really important to show off the talent of Lincolnshire and support small businesses.

“The whole thing is very relaxed and people can go round it at their own pace and it’s a nice day out that will get you out the house for a couple of hours.”

Guitar duo Nigel and Teri entertained visitors with a selection of songs in the courtyard and there were some lawn games for people to get stuck into.

The Lincolnshire Makers Market will return to Springfields Events Centre in Spalding on Saturday, June 22, between 10am and 4pm.

Jodie explained how it will be their biggest one yet and added: “We will have over 100 stalls for our Summer Makers Market in June and I am really excited.

“We are always looking to bring in different businesses and we will be branching out to Lincoln for the first time in September for our Marvellous Makers Market.”
