Hand Made in the Hunter markets are held on Saturdays (usually) in the grounds of Sobels Winery on the cnr of Broke Rd and Halls Rd, Pokolbin. This is a lovely setting and the market specialises in unique items handcrafted by local artisans. Stalls are carefully selected to avoid duplication creating a visual exciting market. And of course you can also sample the wines! Please check out HAND MADE in the HUNTER's Facebook page if inclement weather is expected - rain, winds or heat waves. If a market is cancelled the notifications will be posted as soon as the decision is made. The organisers also hold additional markets when concerts or other events mean the area will be popular. Check their Facebook page.
