It was nice to be back at Altrincham Market for the first time since the awful fire in Market House, and great to see that it is back on its feet and busy as ever!
With the market falling just before Mother’s Day, last minute gifts seemed to be the order of the day, with some seriously covert purchases going on whilst Mum wasn’t looking. We hope that everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day chocolate gifts, and if you’ve run out already you can find us at Altrincham again this coming weekend, so pop down and stock up!
Thank you to all the people who braved the mild monsoon to visit Levenshulme market this weekend. We also had our last visit to Altrincham Market until our Christmas weekend (11-14th December). We’ve really enjoyed being there over the past few months and are definitely looking forwards to a whole long Christmassy weekend in such a lovely atmosphere.
We also had our first mince pies of the season – big and mini, both stuffed with brandy soaked vine fruits. The mini ones were so popular, extra reinforcements had to be made late on Saturday night.
Pre-orders are now being taken for mince pies and Christmas cakes to be collected from any of the December markets in our events calendar. Get in touch for more information and to place your order!
Thank you once again to everyone who braved the weather to visit us this past weekend at Altrincham Market. Sadly, we won’t be there this weekend, but will return on 1st & 2nd November to see those of you able to venture out after the previous night’s Hallowe’en celebrations.
This weekend saw our first double outing at Altrincham Market, and we were lucky enough to enjoy the space of a double stall on Saturday, which came in very handy considering that we had brought the kitchen sink!
Noticed a definite change in the weather this past Saturday at Altrincham Market, with the unwelcome rain and chilly wind.
Giant coconut & cherry macaroons proved a big hit, with one early customer even seen munching one for a very sweet breakfast! With no macarons this week, there was greatly reduced confusion about which is which. We’re back next weekend with both…. I’ve planned the explanation already!
Another fun weekend at Altrincham Market, and our first Saturday trading at the market.
We arrived armed with new flavours of mallows and three very different tarts (see below) – Chocolate & Salted caramel, Raspberry & Pistachio Breton, and Lemon meringue. I think the lemon meringue was our most popular.
A quick thank you to everyone who came out and saw us at Altrincham Market. With the opening of the renovated market hall, the main market will be expanding to cover the whole weekend. This means you can catch us in Altrincham again on Saturday 20th September.
There’s lots going on for us this week, with a new market at Levenshulme on Saturday and back to Altrincham on Sunday for our first market following the opening of the refurbished market hall.
We’ve also been working on the development of new products and packaging, including new mallow flavours and a chocolate version of our ever popular salted caramels, made with rich 70% Valrhona chocolate. You can grab a bag at either of our upcoming markets, along with our usual range of confectionery and fresh patisserie, but you’ll have to wait a while to see our new packaging…. we’re still waiting for the labels to arrive!
