Our Independent Wirral Market is transforming into a food-lovers paradise this coming weekend.
From Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th July (11am-6pm) the rustic market village will play host to some of the region’s finest makers, bakers and food heroes.
The festival, which is sponsored by Carlsberg Marston’s Beer Company, is set to be the highlight of the Wirral foodie calendar and one of the busiest weekends yet at the popular riverside food and drink hub.
The 24 chalets will be packed with a wide variety of foodie treats including some of Wirral’s leading food and drink specialists including Nova, Whitmore & White and Brimstage Gin.
There will also be a variety of fresh produce from Wirral Fruit and Veg along with some sublime locally sourced, hand-crafted delights courtesy of Foragers Fancy.
For a taste of the Mediterranean, the team from The Sicilian Way will be showcasing a range of fresh olives, cheese, meats and oil direct from the Italian isle and North By Sud Ouest will be showcasing their multi award-winning range of Pyrenean inspired cured meats, in partnership with Edge and Sons Butchers.
Sweet tooth’s will be equally well catered for with some delicious home-made treats from Little Bears Fudgery, Finella’s Fancies and Cake Pronto and spice lovers can get their hit from the mesmerising range at Ena Spices.
An extra seating area, complete with haybales, plus a range of special dishes and drinks offers in the Woodside Ferry Village food hall, complete what is set to be a totally tasty weekend for the whole family.
Woodside Ferry Village has become one of the region’s go-to foodie destinations. With eight independent food vendors, the popular ‘Tipsy Duck’ bar and some of the best views in the area, it’s easy to see why Woodside is now firmly on the regional food map.
Woodside CIC Managing Director Sharon Stanton said: ‘ We are all big foodies here at Woodside and we are so passionate about showcasing some of the incredible foodie talent we have here on Wirral and across the region. We are delighted to have so many amazing traders joining us this weekend and hope to see lots of guests and shoppers enjoying the festival atmosphere and loading up on their favourite treats.’
