Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th April, 11.00am - 6.00pm Phoenicia Hotel, Floriana.

The Malta Artisan Fair, often described as Malta’s authentic local market, enjoys a tremendous reputation for offering the opportunity to buy locally produced, high quality, affordable products direct from carefully selected artists, craftspeople and food producers while positioning the fairs in beautiful historic or architecturally interesting locations around the island.

You are invited to ‘make a day of it’ and join us at one of our exciting fairs during 2014 and meet up with family and friends at our family-friendly events where children will also be able to participate with artists themselves in creative activities. The fairs are a feast for the eyes and taste buds and with tables and chairs provided, you can sit and relax and taste local artisan foods and shop for beautiful local arts and crafts at your leisure while enjoying entertainment by local musicians..

The upcoming market is being held at the Phoenicia Hotel Ballroom, Floriana, from 11.00am to 6.00pm.

The Malta Artisan Market is now firmly established as THE place to buy your original gifts produced by local artisans in Malta. The fair takes place in the glorious 1930's Phoenicia hotel ballroom which is filled with delicious tastes and smells from some of Malta's best artisan food producers as well as some of Malta's beautiful arts and crafts sold directly by the artist and craftsperson. Children will also be able to participate with artists themselves in creative activities organised especially for the day. Entrance is free.

About Us

Launched in May 2011 in Vittoriosa, the Maltese Artisan Fairs 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 Christmas Market 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 Fairs' aim is to further promote high quality local arts and crafts and quality food products and good eating. The fair is an excellent selling point for enterprising individuals who are creating delicious delicacies with local seasonal products and serves as an excellent showcase.
