Information for new craft stall and shop applicants and criteria
. Alford Craft Market is a non-profit making organisation, 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 Alford and the surrounding area. Our main 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 Easter and Christmas markets. Various other external events are also attended by Alford Craft Market, and of course, there is our Alford Craft Market Shop & Centre for shopping, craft classes and taster sessions.
