This Saturday 14th June, the Urban Markets are uniting for a market extravaganza, showcasing the best in street food vendors, second-hand stalls and local artistry, all within one afternoon at the iconic Old Granada Studios.
A special homage to the great street food movement, Guerrilla Eats will descend on Old Granada Studios to present The British Street Food Awards 2014: Northern Heat.
A showcase of the finest street food in the North, accompanied by DJs and pop-up bars, from 6pm – 11pm market-goers can sample an array of foodie delights and vote for their favourite traders on the night via the British Street Food App. The winning trader will receive a golden ticket to the British Street Food Awards Final in September.
The Urban Markets will include BITE, Manchester’s first weekend gourmet and street food markets, boasting a huge array of food stalls offering gastronome expertise and inspiring hospitality created by specialists within the new foodie hub.
Finders Keepers market, spanning the gamut of second-hand shopping, the stalls and boutiques will showcase unique finds from vintage to bric-a-brac, antiques, collectables and objet d’art. The popular Maker’s Market and Art & Design market will also return featuring creative workshops and unique collections from fresh, talented local artists.
The following week, vintage and fashion lovers can look forward to another instalment of Vintage Village on Sunday 22nd June, presenting an abundance of high quality authentic vintage clothing and accessories for men and women.
Vicky Jackson, Head of Urban Markets said ‘We are delighted to bring the very best of the Urban Markets together this summer, with a staggering line up of traders the spectacular location of Old Granada Studios resonates perfectly with this exciting market extravaganza.’
April saw the launch the Urban Markets at Old Granada Studios, with thousands of visitors returning to the iconic destination every weekend to experience the region’s new arts and cultural neighbourhood.
Hosted within an exceptional, quintessentially Mancunian setting, Old Granada Studios has inherited its culture and has embraced its world-renowned attributes and with the recent inclusion of the Urban Markets, this hugely iconic destination is set to be kept on the map for years to come.
