Manchester’s newest market offers up a street feast

Piccadilly Street Food market will be a must visit location for all hungry shoppers when it sets up shop for the very first time on Thursday 11 October 2012.

The market will be the perfect place to pick up a snack on the go and will continue to run weekly every Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 11am and 5.30pm.

Hosting an exciting and vibrant array of traders Piccadilly Gardens will be filled with irresistible aromas making it the ideal pit stop for anyone in the city centre.

And if you think street food means greasy hot dogs and cold chips you'll be in for a surprise. The market will host a wide selection of stalls offering affordable, locally sourced and exciting food.

Among the delights on offer will be lamb and goat curries from OSA African Foods, pizzas cooked in a clay oven from Fire and Slice Artisan Pizza and Indian street food, including dosa, samosa and bheli puri, from Chaat Cart.

Council Bernard Priest, Manchester City Council executive member for neighbourhood services, said: "If you're out shopping or work in the city centre the Piccadilly Street Market will be the ideal place to grab something to eat.

"I'm sure it will not only prove incredibly popular but extremely hard to walk past without grabbing a bite to eat."

Every week running along side the street food market will also be the Fruit and Flower Market.

While taking place on the first Saturday of the month will be Piccadilly by Design , on the second and forth Saturday of the month there will be the Real Food and Fairly Traded markets and the Vintage & Fashion Market will be held every third Saturday of the month.

Piccadilly Street Food Market will run Thursday-Saturday every week 11am-5.30pm from Thursday 11 October.
