About Malta Artisan Markets

Launched in May 2011 in Vittoriosa, the Malta Artisan Markets – Malta’s original artisan market – has taken place in numerous beautiful historic settings in Malta including Couvre Porte, Birgu; Senglea; Kalkara, 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, Cavalieri Art Hotel and other private venues and also forming part of large events.

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 amidst a convivial atmosphere. The market is a brilliant selling point for artists and craftspeople and for enterprising individuals who are creating delicious delicacies with local seasonal products and serves as an excellent showcase.

  • Have a look at the previous market photos here & watch our promo.
  • We are delighted to announce that for a second time Malta Artisan Markets has been awarded by National Enterprise Support Awards (NESA). 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. Have a look at the video!

We are still inviting artisans to get on board our online platform for a virtual market experience in 2023! This initiative will run alongside our physical markets to enable visitors to support local artisans throughout the year.
