Buy local- Altrincham Market - Sunday

By 03:24 ,

When the sun made a rare appearance over the Manchester skies this weekend, the discussions started again: What are we doing? Where are we going? Are we taking the car out and risk being stuck in traffic to one of the few nice day out destinations? 
We decided to stay local and take them tram for a change and make our way to Altrincham. The mighty internet informed us that there would be a farmers market this sunday and as I have never been to Altrincham before it was a quick decision to make.

Being a bit of a foodie (I´m sure this is surely and slowly taking over this blog), I was like a kid in a candy shop! So many fresh and locally crafted dishes. All you could ever want and find hard to get in Manchester: fresh bread (Robinsons at the Piccadilly Market is an exception), corn fed chicken, paella, scones and lots baked goods, eggs, Moroccan food, flowers, jams, rubs and spices, bath bombs ( please don´t eat), soups and cheese melts. 

Sam told us she only opened her business in September but her Chili Preservers are going well! I bought a super hot one for my brother back home. The first official export! 

Kids (like me) were particularly drawn to this display of live honey bees, basically watching the sale of their own produce! Great advertising! 

Granola crunch parfaits with Greek Yoghurt! 

The weather added definitely to my experience at the market, it was just so relaxing to sit in the sun taking in all the smells and listening to some live music. On a rainy day I probably wouldn't make the trip but if you are looking to go somewhere nice with your kids, without breaking the bank, getting some fresh produce in for your roast dinner and want to support local businesses then this is your place.

Return tram ticket from Manchester Market Street around 4pound.
