While the coronavirus has stopped public events happening in Orange the Journey Person Handmade Pop Up Market is moving to become an online activity this weekend.
Corner Store Gallery director Madi Young said she did not want to have to cancel the market and was working with craft makers across the region to keep it going.
She said a list of participating craft makers would be up on the art gallery's website www.cornerstoregallery.com from Thursday March 26 to Sunday March 29 with links to their online shop sites, Facebook pages or Instagram sites.

"We should have at least 10. They will be offering special discounts and free shipping," she said."
She said many of the craft makers had their own online sales presence so they were set up for such a market.
Candlemaker Lina Zappia said she concentrated on markets and Facebook and Instagram for sales of her soy wax candles.
"I have some new styles for this market," she said. Mrs Zappia is offering a 10 per cent discount for Orange region buyers and free postage Australia-wide.
The markets are part of the activities included in the FOOD Week program but public gatherings have been cancelled.
