Christmas is going to look a little different for all of us this year and artisan markets are no exception.

With social distancing, mask-wearing and extra cleanliness at the top of the list of priorities, many of us are looking for ways to shop for gifts and treats without risking the crowds in town centres and indoor shops.

Worker Bee Markets, run by Cheadle Hulme-based Clare Simpson, have always been committed to bringing fantastic quality handmade goods to communities and this year means new makers who only started to trade after lockdown, alongside established makers whose imaginations blossomed when they were stuck at home.

With events in;

  • Poynton (Brookside Garden Centre on 18th October)
  • Bramhall (Village Square on 7th November)
  • Reddish (Broadstone Mill on 14th November)
  • Marple Bridge (Windsor Castle Pub on 28th November)
  • Heald Green (Christmas Lights Switch On at Finney Lane Shops on 29th November)

This means many Stockport communities can find a safe environment to buy handmade products near them.

And the best thing about Worker Bee Markets is that they hand-pick their makers to include local talent wherever possible. So you do not have to go far to support small businesses in your area.
