heloem is: true

We were delighted that The Guild (Dumfries) C.I.C were given the opportunity to organise the whole event at the Lights Switch On in Dumfries town centre in December 2019. We had so many positive comments and feedback from people who visited our market in 2018 we knew a Christmas Makers Market had to be part of our plans, but even bigger!

 

On the 1st December 2019 we transformed the town centre into a festive festival for the day! With over 35 handpicked stalls at our Makers Market laden with the finest homewares &  gifts, arts & crafts, food & drink, stocking fillers & decorations plus so much more! We showcased selected makers, creatives and producers from across the region and beyond.

 

The Christmas Makers Market was the perfect opportunity to meet the maker and find covetable products that you might not find elsewhere. Thousand of visitors on the day enjoyed buying directly from the makers and supporting their independent businesses. The community came together to feast on festive food and take delight in a marvellous selection of beautifully crafted & unusual designs.

Dumfries town centre became a bustling market town, filled with a whole host of local stallholders at our special Christmas Makers Market. Over 35 local makers, designers, food & drinks producers, charities and street food vendors hosted stalls in the town centre and we took over the street in Queensberry Square and down towards Burns Statue on the day. There was also a variety of street foods, with space to sit and savour their great culinary delights, engage in conversation and experience a friendly, energetic and festive atmosphere. It was a wonderful event, the perfect excuse for many to get some Christmas shopping done and provided an excellent opportunity to support the town centre. Thousands enjoyed the makers market and a whole host of other free entertainment, performances, creative workshops, story telling, the santas grotto, the reindeer and so much more.
