A couple of weekends ago we were at Buxton’s first Artisan Market, organised by The Market Co. and Buxton Town Council. Set up on the high street Spring Gardens in the town centre, the market was buzzing with amazing food, crafty delights, and of course our beautiful Rowallan leather bags! It was a great success, and a brilliant opportunity to get the community of Buxton together with plenty of entertainment and unusual offerings from the various market stalls.
Whilst we were there, we got a chance to wander around the town and check out a few of the independent businesses around Buxton, of which there are plenty! The historical Buxton Spa boasts some really eclectic traders, and after a quick look around the shops, we headed to the tea room at Charlotte’s Chocolates, which has a really lovely roof terrace overlooking the old spa. What a lovely little cafe! A vintage inspired tea room, we had tea out of antique pots and homemade fish finger sandwiches with mushy peas – which were gorgeous! To top it off we got a cheeky free chocolate from their shop downstairs with our bill. Lovely service, reasonably priced yummy food, and a perfect location for a good old brew!
We had a really good day at the market – lots of interest and very positive feedback from our customers who had come from all over Derbyshire to have a look around the market. Overall, an exciting new venture for The Market Co., and we can’t wait for the next one on Saturday 5th July!
