Artisan: Makers’ Market

Please note:

We are in the process of applying for planning permission for Artisan. Until this is secured the market will be not taking place.

We are also sorry to say that due to unforeseen circumstances, Tony the Market Manager will no longer be able to operate the market on our behalf. We will update the website accordingly with further news. March 2014.

The district’s own art, craft and produce market. Each piece of craft is handmade and unique and offers something special for the discerning shopper. Artisan operates in St Georges Street Canterbury (next to M&S) every fourth Saturday in the month. For further information please read on.
