Held at The Lowry’s open-air plaza arena from Saturday 27 – Monday 29 August, The Makers Markets hosted a bank holiday weekend full of quality artisan food, drink and crafts.
A remarkable 107 different stalls displayed a vast array of local goods and produce. Locally brewed ales, award-winning cheeses, vintage trinkets and locally produced jams were just some of the many stalls on show.
The weekend also saw live cookery demonstrations and musical performances, including the Trafford-based ‘Loose Change Buskers’ – who have raised a staggering £258,000 for Cancer Research UK.
Victoria Jackson, Event Director of The Makers Markets, said “We are thrilled to be working with Lowry Outlet. It is a privilege to bring together a fabulous mix of artisans and food talent which complements the Lowry Outlet’s current offerings”.
The Makers Market is an established artisan market with monthly events held in Cheadle, Knutsford, Eccles, Northern Quarter, Chorlton, Spiningfields, Didsbury and more.
Commencing from the weekend launch, The Makers Markets will now be held on the last weekend of every month at the Lowry.
With the vast array of local goods, there is something for everyone at The Makers Markets.
