With most of us being treated to three days off work this coming bank holiday weekend, why not make the most of it and head to the new Lowry Outlet Makers Market from Saturday 27th August – Monday 29th August 2016.

Families can make a day of it, couples can indulge and friends can catch up over a cup of craft coffee or a traditional real ale. As well as showcasing award-winning local food, drink, art and craft producers, there will also be live music, performance, cookery demonstrations and activities for children too.
This bank holiday weekend, Lowry Outlet Makers Market will host 107 different stalls across the three-day launch – with stall holders changing each day, meaning there is something new to come and see. Whether it’s something for dinner, a unique gift for someone special or stocking up on those everyday essentials, Lowry Outlet Makers Market is a wonderful day out for the whole family. During the launch weekend, shoppers can browse award-winning cheeses and pies, locally brewed ales, doorstop sized brownies, posh tarts, rustic breads, vegan treats, spicy sauces, locally produced jams and chutneys and salt and spice gins.
