A new monthly market for Manchester launches tomorrow, bringing with it a new wave of local artisan producers, alongside food, drink and live music.

Hosted on Aspin Lane, near Angel Meadow Park, MeadowSide Market will run on the second Saturday of every month, bringing with it independent stalls, local live music, DJs, street food and drink from some of the city’s current best talent. 

Hosted from 10am – 5pm this Saturday, visitors can browse ornamental handmade pots and plants from The Ornamental House and browse through vintage clothing from Sunflower Vintage, alongside pieces from other sellers.    

A selection of food and drink will also be available, from the likes of Grounded coffee, Dough So Good pizzeria and Blackjack Brewery.

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.”
