Not just another bazaar

The ARK – Under the Trees bazaar has been making waves in and around the Limassol area over the last two years and now with the coming of summer and perfect weather, it is ready to welcome people again on Saturday.

Known as not just another bazaar, ARK – Under the Trees gathers a group of Cyprus-based artists and craftspeople together to display their work. The people behind the artwork will show it off in the village of Erimi in the Limassol district this time. This traditional village, with lots of British expats, The Cyprus Wine Museum and a tavern, is the perfect place for a full-day of soaking up art while also relaxing.

One of the founders of the bazaar said its aim is to provide an outlet for the producers, and a brand that people can rely on to do something different. “Ideally, we want to surprise people who come to an ARK event for the first time, in a good way. The fact that we put art and design and crafts in a combined handmade market-place and art exhibition, is in itself something quite new for Cyprus,” she said.

The bazaar will start at 3pm and go on until late. You could go away with some jewellery, organic body products, textiles, clothing, ceramics, paintings, illustrations, furniture and a number of other items to make your house a home.

But this is not just one of your typical bazaars. It is a full-packed day with freshly made drinks and refreshments, chill-out music and an inspiring atmosphere where you will also have the chance to meet some very interesting people.

Bazaar with lots and lots of handmade arts and crafts and different art work. June 11. Erimi village, Limassol. 3pm until late. Tel: 99-575116
