The fifth Sensational Saturday Maker Market will be on Cross Hill car park this Saturday, August 16.

Instigated as part of the Real Driffield campaign last year, the markets have proved a phenomenal success.

The markets are held on the third Saturday of the month between April and September running from 9am to 2pm, and are sponsored this year by Richardson Ford.

The market will be packed with unique fayre, including local food producers, designer makers and vintage and upcycled items, jewellery, clothing, arts and crafts. The market will welcome back traders such as Floral Chocolates, Brown and Blond, Wolds Cottage Kitchen, Albion Artisan Foods, Ox Close Traditional Fine Foods and Yorkshire Wold Bees, as well as newcomers such as KM Cakes and Black Lab Furniture. The markets are also offering a great opportunity for Driffield based organisations to promote themselves and this week we will welcome Driffield Photographic Society who will have their brilliant photos on show and also for sale.

Driffield Folk Festival Committee will also be performing throughout the day and promoting their upcoming Festival in the town over Bank Holiday Weekend. Town Clerk, Claire Binnington said: “We have been delighted with the response the musicians have had at the markets, they have made it really special and I would like to thank John Avery of Driffield Folk Committee, for co-ordinating everything”.

Claire continues ‘We have more traders than ever, which is great after the disappointment of having to cancel the July market due to storms that didn’t actually materialise. We have also been very fortunate to have the success of the markets endorsed and sponsored by such a high profile business as Richardson Ford and we thank them for their support’.
