A Real Treasure Trove in Levenshulme…

Anyone who has visited any of the local markets in South Manchester, may have come across Trove Foods. Run by now-husband-and-wife-team, Katy & Marcus, Trove’s aim is to supply food made from fresh, seasonal and organic produce. From their market stall, they sell jams, preserves and chutneys and often a soup of the day. This was how we first got to know Katy & Marcus. On a cold March day, their spicy soup was the order of the day – and we never forget a good taste! Their stalls are always utterly gorgeous – recycled jars filled with their produce, sitting in apple crates and often with jars of wild flowers, supplied by… of course, Bud Garden Centre. If you follow our blogs, you’ll know that collaboration is our most favourite word – and Bud and Trove do just that 🙂

So, when we found out that Katy & Marcus were looking for premises, we were very excited for them. We also had an inkling what it might look like – and when it opened last week, on Stockport Road in Levenshulme, we weren’t disappointed. Across the road from the big antiques centre, you can’t really miss Trove as their original Citroen van is usually parked outside…

The interior is just perfect. White washed walls, stripped floorboards, railway sleeper shelves, metro tiles, subtle colours – and a huge centrepiece table, made by Marcus, out of reclaimed boards. The menu is currently very simple and rustic. On the day we went, there were two soups – Mushroom and Beetroot & Stilton – homemade savoury tarts and homemade bread. Both varieties of soup were simply stunning – and served in big bowls with generous slices of sourdough bread. There was no scrimping going on here!

Hopefully, the addition of Trove will help to continue the resurgence of the A6 corridor through Levenshulme. We can’t recommend enough heading over and sampling some really gorgeous rustic, simple (in the best way possible) & home made food…
