Largely organised by known fashion Brand owner Hannah Vail of Han*, this is an initiative sponsored by Inner City Trust to increase footfall in the somewhat forgotten gem that is the Craft Village and provide much needed market space in the city centre.

The market will support local food produce, hosting food vendors from across the North, including Derry’s Umi, Berry Lane, which creates stunning Belgian chocolate strawberries, Dart Mountain with their small batch cheese and chutney, Carrick Foods who will be providing a mix of bake at home mixes and fresh loaves, and Monto Chocolates.
