Little Bird Made are preparing for a busy weekend with their outdoor artisan markets in Easingwold and Wetherby. The weather is set to improve towards the weekend, so grab your family or friends and come along for a wander around the market and enjoy a relaxing shopping trip in the sunshine.
Life is tough for everyone just now and there is no better time to make the effort to support local small business, safe in the knowledge each purchase really is going to support the makers, bakers, creators, designers, artists and families behind each stall at Little Bird markets. Stall holder travel from across the Yorkshire area and many of them create unique handmade items that are not available from larger retailers. The ethos behind Little Bird Made has always been to shop local, and this doesn’t just mean shopping at the markets. As most of the markets are held within town centres they aim to encourage people to use the local shops and businesses within their own towns and villages as well.
You don’t need to travel to larger towns to go clothes shopping, there will be a wide range of clothing and accessory stalls this weekend, with everything from children’s clothing through to bespoke items for adults. Some of these include: Maes Handmade with lots of ethical and sustainable hair and fashion items to accessorise any outfit, Lou Lou Scarf with bespoke quality wool scarfs, waistcoats and ties all lovingly made in Yorkshire, Two little Mice and CraftyAllsorts4All who both specialise in fun children’s clothing, alongside Seb & I who are an eco-friendly mum and baby business with lots of gift ideas for both new arrivals and mummies to be and Forme Prints with their range of screen printed sustainably sourced clothing and bags for adults.
These will just be some of the stalls over the weekend there will be the usual mix of crafts, food, drinks, homeware and fragrances, self-care and tasty food vendors to grab a bite to eat or drink.
The markets will take place in the following locations:
Saturday 13th August, 9am – 2pm, Market Place, Easingwold YO61 3AA
Sunday 14th August, 10am – 3pm, Market Place Wetherby LS22 6NE
