The Coal Loader Artisans Market
This sustainable and unique market is held four times a year... and features around 100 makers!
The market offers you an opportunity to purchase original and creative handmade products directly from emerging and contemporary designers, artists and makers, while enjoying the atmosphere of the beautiful and historic site.
Stalls display and sell art, ceramics, sculpture, basketry, eco products, fashion, jewellery, accessories, wool creations, textiles, food, children's design and much more.
We are proudly single-use plastic-free, please help us stay that way by bringing a keep-cup, reusable water bottle, and cloth bags.
Held rain or shine, the venue offers a beautiful all-weather marketplace to showcase local creative talent, and it's a pretty fabulous day each time!
Visitors are strongly encouraged to walk, ride, or use public transport to get to the market as parking is limited.
The nearest station, Waverton, is just 6 minutes' easy walk and a community connect bus will be making round-trips between the station and The Coal Loader (Waterhen Drive entrance) every 15 minutes.
