Alton (Hampshire) has had a long tradition of markets, The first recorded market in Alton was in 1232,  and Alton has had a market of some form or other since.  In 1673 it was written Alton -  'market on Saturdays, which is very great for provisions, where also are sold good store of living cattle'.  We no longer buy and sell livestock but we still have a thriving market selling hand made crafts.

The Alton Craft Market is well established.  All goods on sale are made by the stall holders and there is a wide range of produce on offer, including cards, pottery, soft furnishings, glass, original photography, wood work,  to name a few.  See our links page for more information on who exhibits at the Alton Craft Market.

The Craft Market
is held on the second Saturday of each month from March to December 10am to 3pm, excepting when the first of the month occurs on a Sunday, then it is held on the first Saturday (Please see our event dates below for details). 

The craft market is run in conjunction with the Alton Lions Alton Lions with all the stall hire profits donated to local charities. The market venue starts from the Alton High Street end of Cross and Pillory Lane and extends into the traditional Market Square. The Craft Market  is always on at the same time as the Farmers' Market is in town.

Extra Craft Markets are held periodically to coincide with other events in Alton Town Centre, for example, the Jane Austin Week and the Yuletide Festival.  All the dates are listed on the events list below.  New events will be updated regularly so check back.
