The Makers’ Market is part of the on-going programme of specialist markets organised by Stockton Council to attract visitors and shoppers into the town and to complement what the popular weekly market has to offer.

“For the third year running we are bringing new and different markets to the town to complement what the traditional weekly market has to offer. The Makers’ Market celebrates all the creative talent we have in the Borough and gives crafters and small businesses the opportunity to sell their wares. Make sure you come and browse among the stalls.”
