Ross-on-Wye has rapidly gained a reputation as being the ‘town of independent shops’. For visitors who prefer their high street shopping experience to be far less corporate. There are very few recognisable high street band names in the town and a good many highly original retail outlets and arts and crafts specialists to attract those looking for something they can’t buy anywhere else.

Made In Ross

a co-operative of local arts and craft producers living within 20 miles of Ross-on-Wye and is based on the first floor of the historic M3713754.jpgarket House in the centre of the town.

Dedicated to the development of Ross as a thriving 1432999.jpgand creative place, the diverse range of work that its members produce and sell is beautifully displayed seven days a week at the historic Market House in the centre of Ross.

Members manage the exhibition space and volunteers are on hand to welcome and as6934182.jpgsist visitors from 10am to 4pm every day.

Part of its sales goes towards the upkeep of this wonderful building and to support the Courtyard, an educational arts charity.

In 2016, Made In Ross was shortlisted for the tourism attraction of the year by Visit Herefordshire out of entries from the whole county.
