Introducing Neston's Foodie Fridays
|Published: 10th September 2019 13:11|
Neston's recent Summer Market was a great success, according to its host, Neston Town Council, heralding a new era of fabulous food-focused dates for your diary.
Thanks to positive feedback from traders and shoppers alike, the council is now introducing Foodie Friday on the last Friday of each month, launching on 27 September. However, due to themed markets coming up, the Foodie Friday dates for the rest of this year will be on Friday 1st November (Halloween) and Friday 6th December (Christmas).
At the Summer Market, usual beverage trader Rich Coffee was not available, so Elephant Collective stepped in with their vintage van. The council welcomes other local businesses to come forward with proposals to attend, both at special events and the regular market.
In 2020, Foodie Friday will resume. Market co-ordinator Nicky McMahon explains: "We propose to hold these on the last Friday of each month, with the market basement food hall filled with our artisan food traders, offering products such as fresh fish, Guernsey yoghurt, Alpine cheeses, preserves, local sausages, gourmet tinned fish, gelato, honey and artisan bakery products to name but a few.
"On each Foodie Friday, and some of our weekly Friday markets, you will find a range of international traders and street food traders selling delicious products such as onion bhaji or halloumi wraps, TexMex, Lebanese food, Greek cookies, American style bakes, the Great British Bakehouse, artisan bakery products from a Welsh bakery and also our coffee van trader out on the Market Square, alongside our fantastic regular Friday Market traders, of which we have had new additions.
"We will still have some artisan traders in our food hall alongside our regular fresh fish stall and deli counter on other weeks during the month as well.
"Why don't you come and take a look? This will be an ideal opportunity to stock up on some tasty extra special treats once a month. We hope to see you there!"
