WE CREATE MARKET – A Festive Celebration of Local Artisans and Creativity

Preparations are underway for the return of the much anticipated WE CREATE MARKET, a creative and unique shopping experience at Cascades Shopping Centre on Saturday, 9th, and Sunday, 10th December.

We Create Markets spotlight the exceptional talents of Portsmouth designers, makers, and artists. At this year’s market, you will find 52 independent stalls selling a range of holiday gifts. An exhibition of local art and products will be displayed in the shop window, with decorations created by local schools and community groups, along with live local performances throughout the weekend.

Billie Coe, Portsmouth Creates, said, “We Create Markets” is a tradition born out of necessity. During the pandemic, there was a need for spacious, safe, indoor venues that local creatives could afford during challenging times. The overwhelming popularity of the market among local artisans and shoppers alike has been so heartwarming and in demand that Portsmouth Creates is thrilled to continue this new tradition. Join us in celebrating the creativity, craftsmanship, and community spirit that makes Portsmouth a special place to call home.”

The We Create Market takes place on Saturday, December 9th, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and Sunday, December 10th, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Former Dorothy Perkins at Cascade Shopping Centre. Follow us on social media for more information and sneaky peeks!
