Our very first Food & Drink Market for 2015 will take place this Saturday 14th March, 10am to 4pm on the Levenshulme train station car park.
If you love food – and we REALLY, REALLY LOVE FOOD – pop over to our speciality food & drink market for a bite of something scrummy. We’ve lined up an unbeatable roster of irresistible street food and lots of goodies and foodie gifts to take home – from fresh bread and locally grown veg to cheese, meat and lots of gooey cakey treats.
With so much choice of food, drinks, sweets and savoury treats, it might be sensible to give breakfast a miss.
