Handmade craft and more
Sadly, the recent update from the PHO means that farmers’ markets are once again only permitted to sell food items. Another blow for our crafters who had already lost almost all their sales outlets during what is usually their busiest season.
These local gems are now only available to buy online – take a peep below for more info on where & how to purchase!
