STALLS in the City, the open air market, held in partnership with Open Culture, is returning for its fourth year, say organisers, due to popular demand.
The event showcases the city’s creative flair and there will be a range of products on offer from independent artists and designers. The entrepreneurs will be showcasing their talents in Liverpool ONE and giving the public the chance to buy bespoke pieces made by local people for local people.
A large number of local artists will host stalls at the market, including Tracey Nichols of Indigostitch, who handmakes a range of goods from Liberty fabric silver plated jewellery, big button and lambswool felt brooches, to art prints and cards. Her studio is based at 90 Squared in Liverpool.
Another local talent is Jane Adams who sells unique illustrations of Liverpool’s architecture. Elabora, which specialises in the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture, all handcrafted in Liverpool, will also have a stall. Geekcycled, which sells one off gifts and items for the ‘geek at heart’ will also be part of the giant market, together with Kath Flaherty who makes ceramics and books from upcycled leather will also be at the event.
Stalls in the City will take place on June 14th and will continue throughout June 15th, across the same weekend as the city’s River Festival, on Thomas Steers Way, which serves as the main link between the water front and the city centre. Subsequent dates coincide with Brazilica, the UK’s biggest Brazilian Samba Festival and the final date will take place over the August bank holiday.
The market will take place on 14th and 15th June, 12th and 13th July and 23rd and 24th August. Free.
