Little Bird Made is looking forward to two of its biggest markets this weekend in Knaresborough and Harrogate. So, if you are thinking about visiting a Little Bird artisan market this month, then these two are a good place to start.
Each market will be packed full of our amazing traders from across the area, selling their handmade goods. The markets are a great day out for all ages and a good family day out before the kids go back to school. They have goods to suit everyone, you’ll be surprised at the variety you can find. Not only are there items for your home, but there’s lots of self-care, children’s, crafts, art, accessories, clothing, food, drink and lots more. Each market also has street food vendors to keep you fed and hydrated as you browse the stalls.
Not only are the markets packed full of amazing products, but they are also both located in beautiful settings. In Knaresborough the market takes place in the Castle grounds, the Castle was built around 1100 and is open to visitors during the summer. The views overlooking the River Nidd are something you must see and there are lots of walks leading off from the grounds to explore the town or riverbanks. Harrogate market is set within the famous Valley Gardens, which have something for all ages from beautiful floral displays, historic buildings and even a skatepark for the adventurous. The park is a short walk from all of Harrogate’s attractions, so you can visit the famous teashops for afternoon tea or soak up some of the town’s history and architecture.
Little Bird has always been based on the ethos of shopping small and shopping local and encouraging people to support small independent businesses. They also support local communities they trade in and encourage people to visit not only the markets but also the local businesses and tourist attractions in the local area, boosting tourism in each area.
If you would like to come and visit us over the weekend and support our traders, you will find us in the following locations:
Saturday 2nd September, 10am – 3pm, Castle Yard, Knaresborough HG5 8AS
Sunday 3rd September, 10am – 3pm, Valley Gardens, Valley Drive, Harrogate HG1 2SZ
