Holker Spring Market 2017

22nd May 2017
After the demise of the Holker Garden Festival in 2016, the estate launched their first Spring Market over the weekend of 21st and 22nd May.

There was a good variety of stands covering local produce, crafts, food and even a few alpaca's. Entertainment was provided by the way of a wonderful "crooner" and a random giant gardener on stilts.

The weather was ok on the Saturday with a few showers which maybe a reason the visitor numbers were lower than we would have liked. However Sunday more than made up for it with some lovely warm sunny spells and the crowds were out in force.

Overall I had a good weekend with lots of good conversations with potential new customers. A number of pieces were bought and I even had a couple from last years Garden Festival who returned to walk away with three pieces for the guest bedroom.

I look forward to returning again in 2018 and in the meantime have the Winter Market to look forward to later this year. Thank you all for your interest and very kind comments about my work.
