Freshly baked bread from the mobile boulangerie, smoked garlic and the latest in Parisian chic will be on sale as the French Market brings a certain je ne sais quoi to St Ann’s Square.
The French Market is delivered in partnership with Manchester Markets and Team Fantastique and will be open from 10am until 6pm from September 5 until September 9 so make sure you visit and treat yourself to something special.
The best in French produce with cheeses such as Camembert, Blue Brie, Port Salut and a delicious Fourme D'Ambert from Normandy will all be available with plenty of special offers and the chance to try before you buy.
Sausages such as Merguez and Toulouse will be hot off the grill to accompany fresh baguettes, making an ideal lunch away from the office as well as Pomme Provencal, a dish made with potatoes and vegetables, a good option for vegetarians and a delicious take-away.
On the delicatessen counter smoked meats, olives and dried sausages flavoured with wild mushrooms, chillies and cheese will be on sale as well as special spices and delicious preserves and sauces to stock up your kitchen.
Alongside all the tasty food will be the latest in French fashion with costume jewellery and watches direct from Paris. There will also be handmade soaps from Marseille and Italian leather goods all making great gift ideas.
Head of Manchester Markets, Krys Zasada, said: "We are working in partnership to deliver this specialist market, paying close attention to providing high quality goods made in accordance with the French and European traditions. You will be spoilt for choice, so make sure you enjoy this gourmet experience."
Ali Chehboun and Geoff Drinkel from Team Fantastique are over the moon about bringing the market to Manchester. Geoff said: "We would like to thank Manchester for welcoming us back. We really, really enjoy ourselves when we are here and it is such a prestigious city."
