The Newbury Craft Market is set to return this weekend
AN ARTISAN market returns to Newbury this weekend.
On Sunday, May 30, the Newbury Business Improvement District (BID) will host the first craft market in Newbury town center since before the start of the pandemic.
Newbury BID, the non-profit organization behind the Visit Newbury brand, is working with new operators, LSD Promotions – an outdoor event and market specialist – to organize the monthly event going forward.

On the last Sunday of each month, the highly anticipated markets will line the streets of the historic market town alongside independent and national retailers and Newbury hospitality venues, also open to welcome visitors to the town.
Preparations are well underway with the prospect of the market starting at 10 a.m. this weekend, including the implementation of measures favorable to Covid and the collection of final details from traders.
With that in mind, Newbury BID is delighted to reveal some of the new market stalls and traders you can expect to see in the market this week, as well as many familiar faces from previous years.
Stalls include (but are not limited to) gourmet products, such as Greek-style cold cuts with traditional baklava, olives and nuts, Portuguese treats and pies, Asian cooking sauces, artisan donuts and beef biltong, as well as a generous variety of cheeses and organic fruits and vegetables.
A wide range of non-food stalls also secured seats, including a handmade children’s clothing business, candle and melted wax stalls, wood crafts, framed artwork, and a independent fleece business, to name a few.

“We are very pleased with the interest we have generated and are confident that Newbury BID, alongside LSD Promotions, can successfully deliver a craft market that exceeds customer expectations.
