Returning to its opening venue, the inaugural Malta Artisan Markets of the year are taking place the at the unique historical Couvre Porte in Birgu on Sunday 13th June. Creatives connect with an increasing community of local-lovers at the birthplace of the markets.
Stroll around between 10am and 6pm to admire over forty-five stalls with local artisanal products and crafts.
A decade after the first-ever market, the Malta Artisan Markets have taken place over thirty times in some of Malta’s most historically unique locations. Highlights include the Maria Rose Vineyards in Attard, Palazzo Parisio in Naxxar and Fort St. Elmo in Valletta.
Over the years, the markets have given locals and visitors alike the opportunity to buy locally produced, fresh, high quality, affordable products direct from carefully selected artists and craftspeople.

For delicious bites and drinks, Salsa & Samba Street Bites, Coffee Circus and Street Fruit Juice food trucks will be on hand offering refreshments.
