The cameras were rolling in Wilmslow at the weekend after the town’s Artisan Market was chosen to star in a documentary.
BBC’s Inside Out programme makers were in the town on Saturday filming the successful market and the unique products sold there.
They spoke to a number of the market’s award-winning traders who sell artwork and original hand crafted items, as well as the very best of seasonal local farm produce, artisan breads, delicatessen, and hand crafted cheeses, produced and sourced by people who are passionate about what they do.
In particular they focused on Neil Broomfield, the founder of The Great North Pie Company.
Neil, who has won numerous awards for his pies, was filmed cooking and then selling his mouth watering creations at the market.
Also in the spotlight were Cupcakes and Co, Mama K, and Durlington Heyes.
The market was set up by Wilmslow Business Group members Denise Valente and Vicky Jackson, who wanted to save the town’s ailing high street and bring a ‘diversity and ambiance’ that cannot be found in other shopping centres or out of town complexes.
Camera crews captured the monthly event which they are highlighting as an example of enterprise in difficult times.
Vicky said: “I’m hopeful that this exposure will be excellent not only for our traders, but also for Wilmslow.
