Hatch has invited the team behind the successful Stretford Market to bring their sustainable market to the city centre next month.
The team will be bringing their ethical, diverse and food-focused vendors to Hatch for one day only on Saturday 6 November.
Those heading down will find stalls offering cold brew coffee, jewellery, vegan pork pies, hand-fired pottery and homemade hummus.
And that’s not all either.
There’ll also be more from West African superfood stall SACO, handmade macrame plant hangers by Knotty, homemade halloumi from Yorkshire producer Razan who moved to the UK from Syria in 2012, hand-picked vintage finds from MrsMVintage and a range of vegan, organic skincare from Latina trio Esperanza.
All businesses involved are local and passionate about their craft and the creation of a product that gives back to the living world.
The market aims to champion some of the most environmentally friendly and ethical artisans and producers that are local to the Greater Manchester area.
Aiming to be an ‘every day’ market, more than 50% of the traders will be selling food, from farm-fresh to small-batch artisan produce, whether it’s sourdough, hot sauce, cakes and bakes, or even microgreens, every product traded will be sold to you by the hand that made it.
Carefully considered artisan products produced by skilled small businesses sounds like a perfect Christmas shopping opportunity to us.
The sustainable market at Hatch doesn’t stop at ethically sourced food, the market aims to promote businesses whose goals include halting mass waste production.
Incredible vintage clothing will be on offer at the event, as well as one-of-a-kind products transformed from upcycled wood, vinyl, and fabric.
Market organisers Heather Garlick and Annika Edge said: “We hope people experience something very different at our markets which we carefully curate to be food-led, sustainable and diverse.
“We work hard to find the best craftsmanship Manchester has to offer and we’re both passionate about Manchester’s top farmers and food producers who we’ve been working with since 2015.”
The free to attend market will run from 11am – 6pm on Saturday 6 November.
