The Street Food Market has made Piccadilly Gardens one of the best places in the city to pick up restaurant quality food on the go.
And the market has now got bigger and better with Food Friday and Saturday’s new Craft Market.
Piccadilly Street Food has proved incredibly popular since it began in autumn 2012 and Food Friday will see artisan food stalls join the market to offer even more choice to hungry shoppers.
With wholesome food from local producers guaranteed to tempt the taste buds, Food Friday is the perfect time to pick up some extra special ingredients. Highlights include Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire Cheese, handmade Japanese cakes and desserts from Sweet Octopus and Mrs Shah’s Food Company’s aromatic curry spice mixes – made from a unique family recipe.
Piccadilly Gardens will now also host Craft Saturday, running along side the Street Food Market. Craft Saturday will transform Piccadilly Gardens into a bustling bazaar selling a wide selection of local art, crafts and gifts.
With everything from wooden animal carvings by Wooden Ducks, scarves from Edie O’Hara Designs to recycled sculptures by Metal Art Productions and hand-made candles from RJS Craft Saturday is the ideal place to pick up a distinctive gift, or just treat yourself to something beautiful.
Councillor Bernard Priest, Manchester City Council executive member for neighbourhood services, said: “Piccadilly Street Food has proved very popular, so it’s little wonder that it has expanded to include Food Friday and Craft Saturday.
“With a bustling atmosphere in the centre of the city, Piccadilly Gardens is the perfect place to take a break, enjoy mouth watering food and peruse the artisan craft on offer.”
Piccadilly Street Food takes place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11am to 5.30pm.
Food Friday and Craft Saturday run along side Piccadilly Street Food every week.
