BERT and Gert’s Vintage and Artisan market is back in Andover today, filling the High Street with its second market of the year.

The borough council is behind the market and says it caters especially well for those seeking something different, or that special present for a loved one.

Visitors to the market will find a smorgasbord of delights, as Bert and Gert’s mission is to support, encourage and promote small local businesses and to bring arts, crafts and vintage to a wider audience.

There’s also live music in the High Street from ceilidh band Threepenny Bit and a special appearance from the Winchester Ukulele Jam.

Stalls on Sunday include arts and crafts, jewellery, candles, homeware and vintage goods.

Test Valley Borough Council leader Ian Carr said: “Although the weather has been unpredictable lately, the support of Test Valley residents for the exciting and wide-ranging programme of markets in Andover High Street has been phenomenal.

“If we all work together we can keep events like this happening in Andover and help to make sure that the local economy and community continue to thrive.”

Bert and Gert’s market will be open from 11am to 5pm. The Encounters Shop in the Upper High Street will also be open for the duration of the Sunday market.

Two more Bert and Gert’s markets will be held this year – on Sunday, 13 July and Sunday, 10 August.
