Sedbergh Artisan Market

Our sixth season of markets continues with the June edition. The market has grown over the past twelve months and now runs along all of Main Street from St. Andrew’s church gate to the Information and Book Centre. You will find the best crafts, made by the stall holders themselves and delicious food locally produced by the traders. New for this year, there will be hot food. We are working to make the market more of a family occasion with competitions, street magic and games for kids, run by Settlebeck School, in St. Andrew’s church yard. The town’s shops and cafes will be open as usual as a perfect complement to the stalls.
