The Food and Artisan Fayre returns
Artisan delicacies and independent arts and crafts are on offer this Saturday (1 May) with the long-awaited return of The Food and Artisan Fayre.
Found throughout Riverside Walk, the market will support local businesses and independent makers, with a range of stalls serving up fabulous locally produced and sustainable goods. It is also aimed at bringing the social aspect back into shopping, giving people and the community a chance to meet the artisan makers.
With at least 17 confirmed traders, the fayre will feature the likes of Pextenement Organic Cheese, Tiffany's Bakery, Kandy Kitchen Creations, Reedy's Natural Relishes and Preserves, meat and eggs from Bank Top Farm, The Manchester Soap Company, and fresh fruit and vegetables by EGS Services.
Also, live music will be provided by the Flat Cap 3. The band was a regular visitor to the town centre last summer and will be roaming Riverside throughout the day.
Paul Ambrose, BID Manager, said: “It is great to see that visitors are returning to the town centre and this authentic fayre is another positive step as we emerge from the pandemic. The fayre will complement the existing retail line up and provides visitors an artisan market experience which has proven to be successful.
“High streets need people to return and more than ever communities are aware of the importance of shopping local. I’m confident that this monthly fayre will be a huge success and it will continue to grow.”
Rachel Byrne, Centre Manager, Rochdale Riverside, added: “We are delighted that the monthly fayre is returning to Riverside.
“The feedback we received from the fayre which took place just before last Christmas was very positive and I’m sure this event will go from strength to strength.”
The Food and Artisan Fayre, Riverside Walk, Rochdale, Saturday 1 May at Riverside from 9am.
