About the Artisan Market
The Artisan Market at the Mills began in the summer of 2018 and is a collaboration of the North Andover Farmers Market and the East and West Mills. The markets are handmade only events with artisans from all over New England. We also offer live music, children's activities and food trucks.
Two years of markets have taught us a lot. We have listened to our vendors and our customers and are excited to bring some changes that we know you will like. After a hiatus due to COVID-19, we are planning to be back for the Fall of 2021.
Instead of offering 2 markets this year, we will be offering one larger event in the fall with more more vendors, and more sales time. Our Fall 2021 event will run from 10 am to 3 pm. We will have scheduled a rain date for severe weather issues. There will be more space for tents and more space for cars to pass during loading and unloading. New this year, we are allowing specialty food vendors* as we will not be coinciding with the Farmers Market. We will be following all COVID19 protocols.
What won’t change? Our awesome volunteers. Free breakfast and water for vendors during the market. Load in and out at your spot. Help with tent set-up.
We are hoping that the things you loved will remain the same and the new changes will bring more customers and even better sales. An October date will allow those who sell holiday and seasonal items to be part of our event. We hope to see you at our new and improved Artisan Market at the Mills!
The markets will take place in the lots behind the West Mill on High St., just a short walk from First and Main where the Farmers Market is typically held. The space abuts Sutton Pond, creating a serene and picturesque backdrop for the market.
*Vendors must apply for a temporary food permit from the North Andover Health Department for a fee of $35.
