Great day selling at Castlefield Artisan market, Manchester on Sunday (first Sunday each month 10 – 3.30). The sun shone brilliantly for us all day. Superb stalls including award winning food produce, crafts, vintage, cafe and live and dancing thanks to the Cotton Town Hot Club. The location is perfect with canal side bars and restaurants, all in all a way to spend a sunny Sunday morning.
This was the last market there this year, they will resume on the first Sunday in February.
Bonker*s Clutterbucks had a wonderful day at the Castlefield’s Diamond Jubilee Artisan Market on Sunday. Folk turned out in force despite terrible British weather to support the carnival and artisan market and to stock up on the fabulous produce and handmade goods. The arches were festooned in red, white and blue bunting and afternoon tea was served on vintage crockery with entertainment provided by the fabulous Cotton Club dancers. Deck chairs seemed to be the order of the day and us girls even made it to “Castle Sands” ( a canal side beach) for a spot of sand castle building.
We had an amazing day at Castlefield Artisan Market yesterday, so many scrummy food stalls, great vintage and handmade goodies and the sun shone brilliantly all day. Really enjoyed watching all the members of the Cotton Club Hot Club dancing…. would love to dress and dance like them….. they even have a super cool car! Great day selling with lots of other lovely stallholders ….. underneath the arches!
Final push as we prepare for our last event this year Castlefield Artisan Market, Castle Street, Manchester, this FRIDAY 23rd, 10am to 9pm. We are particularly chuffed to be taking part in this event as it is only the 4th ever Artisan Market to be held here and it also happens to be the brainchild of a lovely couple from Helmshore who have been planning this remarkable market for years. We were genuinely wowed when we visited the market in November as it was a serious foodie fair / come mini Camden or Portobello Road market..with northern edge – all rolled into one. There was some extremely cool vintage ware, live jazz and Cotton Club dancers. Would LOVE to learn! The area has been regenerated while maintaining industrial heritage and the market is ideally situated between the industrial arches and the canal surrounded by great modern architecture and houseboats. This Friday there will be lots of award winning food, drinks, last minute gifts and live music… PLUS ….BBC North West will be reporting live from there from 6.30 pm… so look out for Bonker*s Clutterbucks if you’re able! Oh and please wish us luck as it’ll be an extremely long day for the girls…. it’s cold up north, we’re all feeling pretty ropey + Peter has his annual man flu! X
