A market with a rich tradition and focus on handicrafts.
For the 21st year in a row, the Arts and Crafts Market takes place on 27 and 28 October. The market is open 12-6 pm both days and offers high-quality handicrafts in different genres that includes a large selection of ceramics and jewelry. The craft market mainly takes place in the industrial area; Gallery the Shed, Gallery old Eidsfos, the Back Alley galleries (Ceramist Karin Aashamar will exhibit her works in the Wenche Rimeslåttens studio). Inside Galleri old Eidsfos several artisans from the “Craftsmen in Kuing’s street” in Oslo will exhibit their works. The new silver smith at Eidsfoss, “Eidsfoss Silversmith” (in the shed behind Bråtagata, near Kroa) is also part of the market.
Local musicians offer spontaneous pop-up concerts in and around the market area and several other workshops and studios will stay open too.
