Finally! We’ve got a market back in West Didsbury…

May 22, 2014

…it’s been a long time in the planning and a long time coming, but finally, it looks like we’ve got the market we’ve always wanted in West Didsbury. A market run by a team who understand that for it to be successful, there has to be collaboration & open communication with the independent businesses who trade day in and day out in the area. And, run by a team who understand that a successful market, populated by traders who are creative, unique and passionate, will enhance an already brilliant area and increase footfall. And hopefully, that footfall will return again and support our independent economy. We think this is what we’ve now got…

More information will be posted on Twitter & Facebook over the next few days, but we just wanted to make sure that as many people as possible know about this fantastic new monthly event (the last Sunday of the month), from 10.00am – 4.00pm on the forecourt of Withington Hospital.

We’re assuming that lots of visitors will come from the local area and therefore walk, but if you are coming from a bit further afield, the nearest tram stop is at the other end of Burton Road, just over the bridge – the perfect opportunity to discover our amazing independent retailers, restaurants, cafes & bars, as you walk down to the market. If you are driving, please consider the residents in and around the vicinity of the market site and please don’t park outside people’s houses. There is a huge car park at the hospital and at just £2 for 24 hours, you could leave the car overnight and make a day/evening of it in West Didsbury 😉

We’re currently running a competition over on Didsbury Life to win vouchers to the value of £50 to spend at the market – if you fancy being in with a chance of winning, pop over and enter here. PLEASE NOTE THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED AND WE HAVE A WINNER – SARAH PIENAAR.

THE WEST DIDSBURY MAKERS’ MARKET – SUNDAY 25TH MAY – 10.00am – 4.00pm
