A new monthly market featuring local artisan products and food and drink stalls is set to launch in Manchester city centre.
The first MeadowSide Market will take place this Saturday (8th October) on Aspin Lane, near Angel Meadow Park, and will then run on the second Saturday of every month.
Local, independent stalls, live music, and street food and drink will be on offer from 10am – 5pm.
Developers Far East Consortium are behind the launch of the markets, which form part of its plans to put unsung parts of Manchester city centre to better use under the FOUND event brand.
Andrew Bradley-Nixon, sales and marketing director at FEC, said: “We’re really pleased to be unlocking spaces across the city that aren’t that well-used at the moment by putting on this type of community event.
“Manchester already has some great artisan markets, but this one will be in the heart of the city centre. We think the stalls and street food will go down a treat and look forward to hosting the first market of many this weekend.”
Juvenal Melo Fert at The Ornamental House, said: “These regular markets are really important for a small business such as ours, and we’re really excited to be part of the initial event alongside other talented local business owners.”
