A New Independent Fashion And Vintage Market Is Coming To Manchester’s Hatch

Food, drink and retail destination Hatch is launching a new fashion market for Manchester.

The ‘Off The Hook’ Market will take place for the first time at Hatch in Manchester’s Oxford Road on March 1 and will bring independent and vintage designers and makers from a combination of Depop and ASOS Market Place together for the first time.

The ‘Off the Hook’ Market will be open from 12-8pm and will be a fantastic opportunity to browse individual and unique pieces from a host of independent designers, labels and sellers you won’t find anywhere else.

Off the Hook is a new collective of independent traders all of whom currently sell their products via Depop, ASOS Market Place or independently in Manchester. Set up by two Manchester School of Art students, Off the Hook is a creative hub for budding artists, designers and musicians – the idea is to build a community via events that everyone can experience which makes it a perfect fit for Hatch.

Music will be provided throughout the afternoon and into the evening via an eclectic mix of a DJs including Fynn Bennell from Rascal and Barney Carr from Notre Dance.

As the sun goes down and Hatch is transformed into a vibrant ‘night market’ visitors are invited to enjoy the Off the Hook party vibes throughout the evening, as great shopping and ace DJs meet incredible street food, craft beer, natural wine and cocktails for one big party under the Mancunian Way.

Street food, bars and shops at Hatch will include:

Seasoned: Nothing But Fries

Ready for a chip-based taste explosion? Seasoned: Nothing But Fries is here with a whole new take on the humble French Fry as they bring a barnstorming bevvy of flavours to the bag of chips. Each gourmet portion of specialist fries comes with its own bespoke dip. Chicken Katsu Curry fries comes with natural yoghurt, honey and coriander, whilst Caribbean Prawn Fries come with Spiced Mango, Spring Onion and Red Chilli dip.

The ‘guys behind the fries’ make seasonal seasonings – with Xmas Dinner fries being one of their most famous to date.
