Much loved local market to host Christmas Gift Fairs this and next weekend. Galway's established local artisan market Tiny Traders Village is set to make a comeback this weekend for the first time in 2 and a half months for their Christmas Gift Fair. The event which is to be held in the downstairs area of Tribeton on Merchant's Road will run this Saturday and Sunday from 11am-6pm and again on the 21st and 22nd.
The Tiny Traders Village which had previously been in Aras na nGael and Nuns Island Theatre has not been active since September and director Paul David Murphy says he's " delighted to be coming back and in such a fantastic location" describing Tribeton as "possibly the nicest building in the city" A large number of traders from city and county are confirmed for the event and the Tiny Traders Village which is currently working towards getting a new permanent home has garnered a reputation for showcasing the finest artisan makers, artists, crafters, producers and entrepreneurs. On offer will be everything from Christmas Cakes, Jewellery, Knitwear, Toys, Clothes, Art, Crafts, Cosmetics, and more, with almost all products the work of local design and handcrafters, producers and young entrepreneurs from the city, county and beyond.
