A NEW artisan market is set to be launched in Sale.

The Sale Makers Market will be held on Sunday, June 16 from 11am to 4pm along School Road and into The Square Shopping centre.

The event has been organised by The Sale Partnership and The Makers Market, the leading artisan market company in the North West of England.

The pop up event will showcase awardwinning local food, drink, art, craft producers and vintage artisans, as well as music, performance, cookery demonstrations and activities for our mini market visitors.

The market will be on the third Sunday of every month.

People who love unique art, quirky modern craft or vintage will be inspired by the Sale Makers Market, say organisers.

Food lovers are invited to wstroll around the market, meet producers and sample the delights on offer.

Michael Brown, managing director of Maloneview (Sale) Ltd, owners of The Square Shopping Centre said: “We are delighted to welcome the Makers Market to Sale on Sunday, June 16 and the third Sunday of the month thereafter. Such an iconic brand will undoubtedly have a positive impact on existing town centre retailers and we hope will act as a catalyst to the regeneration aspirations of the town as a whole. We look forward to seeing you on the day.”

Victoria Crane, event manager of the Makers Market, said: "We pride ourselves at the Makers Market in delivering delightful specialist events with many award winning local producers of unique goods set to inspire. We cannot wait to launch in Sale and hope you will join us for our launch."

The Makers Market is a superb opportunity to find out the origins of your food, meet the maker, feast your eyes upon some goodies and fill those shopping bags whilst indulging in some good conversations with our team and traders.’

Councillor Barry Brotherton, said: I am very pleased to welcome the Makers Market to Sale. This Market has a well-deserved reputation for selling great produce and unique items. Please come to enjoy the Market and also visit the shops, cafés, restaurants, and other venues in Sale. Our town centre has a lot to offer.

We are delighted to announce Loose Change buskers will be providing the Sunday market shopping sounds. Loose Change Buskers are an extraordinary group of local volunteers who play instruments, sing and shake buckets, and have so far raised over half a million pounds for cancer research uk.

We will also be welcoming back a selection of Sale Farmers Market stalls, and are delighted to have this opportunity to bring these important stalls back to Sale.
