Our food, drink and gifts market will be held on Saturday 12th December 2015, 10am to 4pm, on the Levenshulme train station car park. 

RIGHT THEN. The blinkin’ wind may have stomped all over our plans for last Saturday’s handmade & home market (which sadly had to be cancelled) but we’re not letting it ruin our Christmas shopping!

We’re having a do-over, adding in as many traders as possible from last Sat’s cancelled market to transform our normal foodie fest into a food, drink and gift shopping special. This means that you can snap up all the lovely jewellery, prints, hampers and woollies you were planning to buy last Saturday, as well as enjoying the best street food, mulled drinkies and fresh produce Manchester has to offer.

PLUS it also means we get another crack at Small Business Saturday – which fate (and the chuffin’ weather gods) snatched from us last Saturday. Come along to support your local traders and show the weather who’s boss!

NIGHT MARKET IS A-COMING: It’s nearly time! Make sure to keep a very close eye on our Facebook page for juicy details of our Christmas night market on Friday 18th Dec.
