Welcome to Malta Artisan Markets

Launched in May 2011 in Vittoriosa, the Maltese Artisan Markets have since taken place fourteen times in beautiful historic settings in Malta including Senglea, Kalkara, Maria Rosa Vineyards in Attard, Palazzo de Piro in Mdina, together with the Easter and Christmas Markets at the Phoenicia Hotel. The markets have been warmly welcomed on the local scene and have given locals and visitors to Malta the opportunity to buy locally produced, fresh, high quality, affordable products direct from carefully selected food producers, artists and craftspeople.

Organised by The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Co – publishers of The Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants in Malta & Gozo and The Malta Baby and Kids directory. Malta Artisan Markets’ aim is to further promote high quality local arts and crafts and quality food products and good eating. The fair is as equally excellent selling point for artists and craftspeople as it is for enterprising individuals who are creating delicious delicacies with local seasonal products and serves as an excellent showcase.

Our next Market will be at Palazzo Parisio, Naxxar.

Saturday 2nd August 2014, from 6pm to 11pm.

The Malta Artisan Markets organised by The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Co are back with another summer flavoured event. Always set in special locations, the upcoming fair has teamed up with none other than the beautiful Palazzo Parisio in Naxxar on Saturday 02 August from 6pm-11pm to provide a fun filled evening under the stars. Entrance is Free.

If you are looking at spending a different evening, come join us for a unique event at the Malta Artisan Market, where you can browse through original and hand-made arts and crafts, as well as delicacies using fresh local produce. Palazzo Parisio will also have their own food stands on the evening selling special treats prepared by their Italian Chef Marco Pinelli. These will include typical Sicilian bites as well as a selection of sweets. On the night there will also be a bar service offering a good selection of refreshments as well as entertainment. Palazzo Parisio’s Luna Restaurant will be available for bookings with limited space. For reservations you are requested to book on (21412461 Ext.2).
