Welcome to Malta Artisan Markets

Launched in May 2011 in Vittoriosa, the Malta Artisan Markets have since taken place eighteen 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.

First in line for 2015, our Easter Market will take place
in the Phoenicia Hotel, Floriana
on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd March.
