Craft Fair

Grundisburgh Craft Fair, Sunday, 16th July… “such treats and delights!”

Trust and dependability are too rare qualities – so it’s good to know that, whatever happens, there are friendly, reliable people in our local community making crafts, baking cakes, growing plants and produce to the highest quality and traditional values. After the magnificent Grundisburgh Village Show, local makers and bakers take over the grand marquee and offer their wares to the Great British Public.

Country Markets is running the fair, a co-operative social enterprise which holds about 300 regular local markets where traditional skills are kept alive. These include jam-making, baking, sewing, knitting and crochet, wood-turning, barge-painting, growing plants for decoration and consumption, keeping bees and chickens. Our talented members make artists’ cards of local scenes, bags, blankets and bunting, scarves, sunhats and babies’ sandals, pretty and unusual beaded jewellery, delicious preserves and chutneys, cakes and cookies, sweets and savouries, all with an eye on the quality of the past and the fashion of today – and to suit all pockets. Members must meet high standards of hygiene, presentation and quality. Our bakers’ delights and all our crafts are handmade by the seller – from children’s knitwear and toys “like Grandma used to make”, to lovely-to-handle wooden dibbers and bowls – and lots more…

Rediscover out what a traditional craft fair offers: come and meet us. There will be treats and treasures for every pocket – and over 30 stalls. Get unique gifts for friends’ birthdays (or even Christmas) at good prices.
