Our Handmade & Home market for the month will be held on Saturday 7th November 2015, 10am to 4pm, on the Levenshulme train station car park.
It’s November! This not only means the height of autumn and all of its lovely colours, but also that it is *nearly* ok to start saying the C-word. That’s right…Christmas! If you’re looking for gifts and lovely things for the people you love, our November Handmade & Home market is the place to find them. We are JAM PACKED with stalls full of gorgeous bits, from hand-drawn art prints and hand-knitted baby clothes (aww!) to super pretty jewellery and sweet-smelling candles.
You can also tart up the home in time for the festive season with Fairtrade rugs, handmade cushions and quirky bits of homeware. As always, we’ve got a few storming lunch options for you, along with our ever-fabulous bar.
Insider tip: the shopping savvy amongst you will realise that our December markets get MEGA busy, so November is definitely the smartypants time to pop along and do all of your Christmas shopping.
Lastly, a MASSIVE thanks to all the ghoulish lovelies who came along to our Halloween night market last Friday, not forgetting our hard-working food traders – it was an incredible evening and so good to see so many local residents and new faces there!
