Baltic Market is Independent Liverpool’s first venue – and what a venue it is too! For many years now, the guys at Independent Liverpool have been raising the profile of a number of the city’s indie restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, but now they’ve got their own independent venture. Baltic Market, located in the city’s iconic Cairns Brewery building, is Liverpool’s first street food market and features some of the best local traders.
A visit to Great Homer Street Market – or ‘Greatie’ to the locals – is a long-running Scouse tradition. Taking place every Saturday between 9am and 4pm, you’ll find anything from clothes and garden furniture to food and trinkets here. Parking in the immediate area can be difficult so make sure you arrive early.
Everyone loves a Christmas market, right?! Liverpool’s Christmas Market takes place outside St. George’s Hall and is one of the most exciting markets in the calendar year. Opening mid-November each year, the market usually runs until around two or three days before Christmas Day, giving you an extended run of mulled wine!
Held on Lake Lane, this is one of the most popular farmer’s markets in Liverpool, attracting thousands of people to its stalls on the fourth Saturday of each month.

Held on Hope Street – a bustling, creative and educational area of Liverpool – is The Makers Market, a once-a-month place for local arts, craft and general makers of things to show off their wares. Expect anything from taxidermy to greetings cards.
