Last weekend when the rain was pouring down and my stomach was rumbling, I headed into Manchester in search of something to eat. I've wanted to visit Castlefield Market for ages but it's only held on the first weekend of the month and for one reason or another I've never been able to make it before. But I have been missing out!
The indoor market is full of handmade crafts and homemade produce. With plenty of street food stalls providing sustenance along the way. I loved the relaxed vibe - a DJ was playing music in the corner and everyone ate along big communal dining tables while making new friends.
It was a hard decision, choosing where to buy lunch from, but in the end I went for a jerk chicken sandwich with the most amazing mango salsa from The Blackbird Pantry. Followed by what has to be the best brownie I've ever eaten. The stall holders were all enthusiastic and happy to chat about their products. There were lots of 'tasters' on offer too - an added bonus!
(Note to self - take a bigger bag next time!)
