Birmingham’s largest artisan market has announced that its first event of 2022 will take place in April.
The Edgbaston Village Artisan Market has seen more than 20,000 visitors since launching last year and will be returning to Greenfield Crescent on Saturday 9 April, from 10am to 3pm.
The market has grown hugely in popularity over the 9 months. Originally a pilot of 24 stalls, it now sees 60 independent businesses from across the Midlands gather to showcase the finest range of artisan food and drink, alongside handmade arts and crafts. Farmers’ market produce has recently been added and has grown to now offer cheeses, bread, fruit, vegetables, bakery and butchers wares.
Commenting on the success of the market, Nicki Gibberson, Head of Marketing at Calthorpe Estates, said: “We have been delighted by the popularity and success of the Artisan Market since it launched in summer 2021, along the new-look Greenfield Crescent.
“Working with award-winning Boffy Markets, we have seen the market go from strength to strength. To keep it fresh and interesting, we have ensured that there is good balance of high-quality artisan food, drink, arts and crafts, alongside a variety of stalls and live music, and the visitor numbers and positive feedback we have received speak for themselves.
“As the first market of the year approaches, we are incredibly excited and really looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying the best of independent Birmingham over the coming months.”
The Artisan Market will return in spring, generally running every second Saturday of the month, starting on 9 April. In the summer, when the city proudly hosts the Commonwealth Games, there will be a special market from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 July, featuring the artisan market, street performers and more.
In addition to the Artisan Market, Edgbaston Village is home to independent cafes, bars, restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Simpsons, Chapter, The High Field, Laghi’s Deli, Loki Wine, and a range of home interest stores to include Neptune, OKA, BoConcept, KIN and Lux Gallery. Furthermore, with a variety of dog-friendly pubs, walks and public gardens, located outside the clear air congestion zone with good car parking and public transport facilities in the vicinity, Edgbaston Village makes for the perfect day out.
