The creme de la creme of authentic Cornish makers will be showcasing their unique products at this year’s official Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair.
The annual event, which is organised by members of Made in Cornwall and supported Cornwall Council’s Trading Standards Team, will take place on Friday, November 25, and Saturday, November 26, at Truro Cathedral.
There will be more than 30 sellers, including jewellery makers, crafters as well as clothes and textile traders. And of course, there will be an array of tasty treats and tempting drinks to choose from.
Every maker has been authenticated by Cornwall’s Trading Standards Team to ensure that every product is genuinely produced in Cornwall and has the official Cornish Gold Stamp of approval.
Carol Mould, portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods at Cornwall Council, said: “This is a fabulous event where people can find wonderful Christmas gifts amongst a cornucopia of delights from local Cornish artisans.
“We are very proud to be supporting our Cornish makers and I really do encourage people to pop down and see what’s on offer.
“All the sellers are vetted by our team so you can be sure that the goods you buy are produced here in Cornwall.”
The Made in Cornwall Scheme was established almost 30 years ago in response to a call for recognition of genuine Cornish products which were having to compete with items made elsewhere but using the Cornish brand.
Over the years it has gone from strength to strength and now has more than over 250 members. It is the largest such scheme in the country.
The fair will be open between 10 am and 6pm on both days and admission is free.
