Launch of Rochdale Artisan Market
Date published: 21 March 2019
Rochdale Artisan Market - 30 March 2019
The Market Co is thrilled to announce that they will be launching Rochdale Artisan Market on Saturday 30 March and thereafter every last Saturday in the month on The Butts.
Rochdale will be brought alive with fresh aromas, vivid colours, eclectic treasures, buzzing crowds – a mere stroll amongst the many stalls of an Artisan Market are enough to invigorate the senses and whet the appetite. These markets aim to keep things authentic, providing a rare but enchanting opportunity to meet the many food & craft producers & suppliers. The local entertainment and local community groups will provide a real sense of ownership, adding to the atmosphere, the mix and bustle reminiscent of yesteryear with a contemporary twist.
It will be a haven for anybody who cares about the quality and provenance of the food they eat, for those that seek something different from that on supermarket shelves. It will provide a cornucopia of exquisite handcrafted, artistic items and an opportunity to interact with the artisan who has produced them.
Most of our stallholders are themselves primary producers, many local to Rochdale – people who grow, make, create, style, rear, craft or bake the products that they sell. Others are suppliers with intimate knowledge of their products and the people who made them.
As a result, the Artisan Markets have become a vast repository of culinary knowledge, artisan craftsmanship and skills from previous generations. It’s a place to explore, to ask questions, to discover new flavours, stumble upon raw talent, unearth entrepreneurship, nurture bygone mastery, and to savour a unique, buzzing atmosphere.
Rochdale Development Agency and Rochdale Borough Council and have been instrumental in bringing this concept to fruition and will be working alongside The Market Co to ensure its launch is a huge success adding vibrancy to Rochdale town centre.
The event will not only provide an outstanding selection of award-winning foods and drinks but also showcase talented artists and crafts people too. The Market Co’s events are totally community focussed and aim to create a local hub where people can come along browse and shop, meet friends, enjoy live entertainment from local musicians whilst sampling some of the very finest streetfood in the North.
The Market Co hopes the people of Rochdale will come along and support their new market and in doing so ensure its sustainability for the future.
Rochdale here we come…
