Valentine’s Market

In the market for love...

This Valentine’s Day, Manchester will rightly take its place alongside Paris, Rome and Venice as a must-visit location for any romantic.

From Friday 14 February, Piccadilly Gardens will host the annual Valentine’s Market, featuring stalls from the north west’s best independent craft and food producers.

Traders will be offering everything from unique fashion and jewellery, to a fantastic selection of freshly cut flowers, making the Valentine’s Market the perfect place to pick up an extra-special present this year.

The market will take place right next to the weekly Street Food Market, so after a spot of shopping it’s the perfect place to indulge in restaurant-quality food at takeaway prices.

Not to be outdone, the Arndale Market will also be feeling the love this year, offering shoppers a host of amorous offers that won’t break the bank.

If you are looking at impressing your significant other with your culinary skill you’ll find the Arndale Food Market can. Selling the freshest ingredients in town, the market offers a cornucopia of delights, including fresh meat, fruit ‘n’ veg, seafood, specialty cheeses, and wine.

Traders are also more than happy to share their years of experience by offering top cookery tips on their produce, so why not be a little more adventurous this year and try home-cooked lobster or oysters?
