Genuine Jersey Markets have returned,
The first market took place last Saturday (15 May) at St Aubin. As previously, before the pandemic brought them to a halt, they offer visitors and locals a variety of local crafts, produce and entertainment.
The artisans’ markets, which are sponsored by Islands Insurance, feature some of Jersey’s most talented producers, artists and craftspeople. On Saturday 18 stallholders displayed their wares.
All Public Health safety precautions are being taken into consideration so people have plenty of space to browse.
Victors to the St Aubin’s market were able to browse handmade paper from Rocque Paper Scissors, jams and chutneys from Lilly & Gorse and The Chilli Kitchen and pottery from The Pottery Shed, to name just a few. Fresh local fish and seafood was available from Jade-S Fisheries. Musical entertainment was provided by Terri Oliver and Nic Dinnie.
In addition a new location for artisans’ markets is being added this month, at Homefields, St Clement outside the Homefields Farm Shop.
Genuine Jersey chief executive John Garton said: ‘We are delighted that after such a long pause we are able to bring our artisans together again, for what is one of our favourite events in the Genuine Jersey members’ calendar. I hope that everyone will embrace our local producers and support the local economy by paying a visit to these markets.’
Islands have been supporting Genuine Jersey members with tailored insurance cover since 2009, ensuring members can obtain the public liability insurance necessary to host a stall at markets and craft fairs at the lowest rate.
The markets will be held bi-monthly throughout the summer in St Aubin and Homefields.
