Information for new art and craft stallholders, Shop seller applicants, prospective Tutors and criteria
, Alford Craft Market promotes quality Lincolnshire Arts and Crafts, and is run solely by volunteers. From it's start in 1974 it's aim has been to promote, encourage and foster the genuine arts and crafts of Lincolnshire and the surrounding area. Our curated outdoor/marquee events are usually held on the May and August Bank Holiday weekends where live music, entertainment, workshops and demonstrations play a big part. We also hold curated indoor Easter and Christmas Craft markets. And of course, there is our Alford Craft Market Shop & Centre for shopping, craft classes and taster sessions all through the year.
