Our first handmade & home market of the month will be held on Saturday 5th September 2015, 10am to 4pm, on the Levenshulme train station car park.
We rounded off a summer of markets with a MEGA night market – it was super packed, really fun and completely delicious, thanks to all for making it such a good night! Now it’s time to power on into autumn with our first September market, boasting the best handcrafted bits, lovely things for the home and of course – some of the best food and drink you’ll find on any Manchester street market. We’ll also be collecting again for Burnage Foodbank, so please feel free to drop off your donations at the green gazebo.
Excitingly, a world record attempt for the World’s Longest Distance Conga will also be ‘da, da, da, da, da, DA-ing’ its way through the market on its way to Stockport at about 12.30pm, so make sure you turn up to cheer them on! Take a look at what’s going on here.
