Recently there has been an increased amount of local press around markets and their benefits to a town.
Altrincham Market (know locally as Alty Market) & Leek Sunday Supplement, have both been praised for what they bring to the town. A reinvigoration one might say using an old concept of a market or market hall and breathing new life into it with a great atmosphere, offering customers something new and a lifestyle choice that they want to be a part of.
Whether it is about buying good food, supporting local producers, making a day of a visit or just something you enjoy doing, it is nice to see that such markets can be credited with this positive accolade.
The rejuvenation of Leek Butter Market in recent years sees many foodie stalls including Camilla’s business, The Herb and Spice Co. A fabulous stall that creates marinades, rubs and mixed spices to help you create fabulous meals for all the family.
“The buttermarket has enabled us to find out feet over the years and offered us a fantastic start up space which we have grown into”

Leek Market, with its handmade bread, chutney, chocolates etc seems to be going from strength to strength.
In 2015, Altrincham Market was awarded with the honour of being named the best Food Market by The Guardian’s, Observer Magazine. And ‘Alty Market’ is also becoming somewhat of a buzzword in local towns! People are hearing about it from far and wide and are willing to travel.
