Join us for an informal and enjoyable day exploring the story of Altrincham Market, Winner of the Observer Food Monthly Best Market Award and finalist in the BBC Radio 4 Food & Farming Awards for Best Food Market.

Come together with other farmers market organisers to discuss learnings and ideas at this fantastic example of diversification.

Meet at 11am for tea and flapjack and enjoy a tour of The Outdoor Department Store and Market House led by Altrincham Market’s Jenny Thompson and Gail Titchener. This will end down on New Market Square, where you will meet the market’s in-house bakery, Lovingly Artisan, recent winner of UK Bakery of The Year. Run by Aidan Monks and his partner, Catherine, they will tell you a bit about their involvement with the market, both as vendors and pop-up event organisers. Followed by a delicious complementary lunch featuring Aidan’s award-winning sourdough.

Finally, there will be an informal discussion group led by Janet Harrison, FRA Farmers Markets council member before departure around 3.00pm.
