It is fantastic that Crafty Vintage are continuing to bring their Artisan Markets to Darwen, following a Winter break. In establishing a Monthly Artisan Market, Crafty Vintage demonstrate that they are dedicated to supporting small businesses, local talent and contributing to our vibrant town centre.
We hope that this continues to bring new people to Darwen, who will get to explore our fantastic independent businesses, our very own Darwen Market and all that our town has to offer.

Laura Johnson, Director of Crafty Vintage said:

Our market is a true celebration of community, featuring the very best in artisanal goods, delectable street food, and captivating live entertainment. Discover a diverse range of high-quality products, carefully curated by talented local artisans, makers, and creators. From handcrafted ceramics and textiles to mouthwatering artisanal foods, every item at our market tells a unique story of talent and passion.

There will be fun for all the family, with free children’s activities funded by both Blackburn with Darwen Council and Darwen Town Council. We’re thrilled to be a dog-friendly market, so feel free to bring your furry friend along to join in the fun!

Located in the heart of Darwen, the artisan market is surrounded by the town’s rich history, independent shops, and fantastic eateries.

The spirit of the market comes alive with live music from skilled musicians and DJs spinning vinyl records, creating an electric atmosphere that will keep you entertained throughout your visit.

Mark your calendars for the last Saturday each month and come experience the magic of Darwen’s Monthly Artisan Market and Darwen Town Centre.
