Welcome to Malta Artisan Markets
“The 2020 Christmas Market was one of a kind. A very innovative idea that in times of crisis still gave us a platform to portray and sell our products. The listing gave me the opportunity to still keep my business running whilst at the same time staying safe and keeping others safe. I had very positive feedback from both my returning clients and also the new clients. Both seemed very interested in the idea. I would fully support a virtual all year round market and I believe that at the moment, its surely the way forward”.

Riding high on the success of our recent Malta Artisan Christmas Markets, we are busy preparing an online platform for a virtual market experience in 2021! Since so far we are unable to hold the markets in real life, until restrictions relax, we shall welcome our artisans, crafters & food producers in cyberspace instead.
If you are an artisan who is interested in becoming part of something spectacular- join our Malta Artisan Markets community to stay updated with our latest proposals. The virtual Malta Artisan Markets will be guaranteed to reach an audience who are passionate about shopping local. The aim of this initiative is to promote small, local businesses online at a time where we are unable to shop from them in the customary way. This digital platform is being planned by the team behind Malta Artisan Markets, who have a wealth of experience in supporting local artisans.
If you’re an Artisan get in touch to find out more now! Malta Artisan Markets reserve the right to approve or decline all listings on the Virtual Market platform, in order to ensure the quality and integrity of products sold through our virtual market.
#Shop Safe #Shop Local #Shop Unique
Launched in May 2011 in Vittoriosa, the Malta Artisan Markets have since taken place over thirty times in beautiful historic settings in Malta including Birgu, Senglea, Kalkara, Maria Rosa Vineyards in Attard, Palazzo de Piro in Mdina, Palazzo Parisio in Naxxar, Fort St. Elmo in Valletta, Is-Suq tal-Belt & Fort Manoel together with the Easter and Christmas Markets at the Phoenicia and Cavalieri Art 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 Kids Directory, and organisers of Offbeat Malta Food Trails. 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 brilliant 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.

We are very happy that such a body is continuing to support us in our initiative to offer a platform to Malta artisans so that they continue to improve their products and skills.
