Having popped up in various Manchester locations, the Makers Market has become a staple for those of the more arts and crafty persuasion. The Makers Market has now revealed that it gladly returns to Cutting Room Square in Ancoats as of this Sunday 2nd April for its longest stint yet!
Much to the joy of locals, the square will be popping once again with independent sellers offering food and drink, homewares and soft furnishings, accessories, prints and ceramics, bringing with it a lovely vibe that signals spring and summer. There will be a DJ playing live all day at the event to keep everyone in high spirits, as well as a craft table to keep the children entertained.
The return of the Makers Market comes as Ancoats was named the best place to live in Manchester, and this news can surely only add to the feeling of community and friendship in the formerly derelict pocket of the city. The accolade also saw Cutting Room Square cited as “one of the ‘coolest streets in the world‘”, so the market has possibly the best backdrop it can get in Manchester; but of course, we already know this.
This Sunday’s lineup includes The Ancoats Distillery Ltd, The Plantisserie and Biscuit + Brew, plus so many other amazing local and independent businesses. It’ll all be in the shadow of now established independent Manchester businesses in the square, such as Jimmy’s, Seven Bro7hers Brewery and Rudy’s, standing vendors in good stead for the future.
As mentioned, the Makers Market tends to pop up in locations around Manchester, so if you can’t get to the Ancoats ones there’s always the chance to get down to the likes of the Northern Quarter, Quayside MediaCity or Cheadle.
The Makers Market returns to Cutting Room Square, Ancoats on Sunday 2nd April between 11am-5pm, and updates on further events can be found on their website.
