Chorlton Market – 19/04/2014

by on April 19, 2014

It was our first time at Chorlton Market and what a wonderful surprise! The small market is packed with high quality produce and delightful sweets.

Besides our usual favourites – venison Scotch eggs and sausage rolls from the Moocher, the Buttery pies and sticky toffee pudding, and the delicious scones of Pudding&Pie Café – we have found amazing flavours ranging from British traditional dishes to exotic international cuisine.

The Uprising Bakehouse showcases a variety of savoury breads, focaccia and hot cross buns alongside Iranian sweets. The walnut and cardamom cake, a version of the Persian love cake, was light and perfectly spiced. If you ever get the chance to try it, do not waste it! Seriously, that cake is life-changing. Their borek with feta and parsley is also worth mentioning as it reminded us of Mediterranean pastries.

In terms of preserves and savoury jams, Alam’s mango chutney was arguably one of the best we’ve ever tried and the Buttery mint jelly was spot on, refreshing and perfect with lamb. Special Preserves brought some gorgeous jams and curds with unusual flavours and combinations. We thoroughly recommend the blueberry and strawberry jam, the passion fruit curd and the hot chilli jam.

The market was fully stocked with fresh meat from Savin Hill and Brown’s Butchers, including pork, lamb, rose veal and wild venison, and beautifully coloured organic eggs, just in time for Easter.

For the arts&crafts lovers there were several stands with art supplies, personalised ceramics, vintage vinyl records and silver jewellery by Leaf.

Intense flavours, fresh organic produce, arts&crafts – the Chorlton Market exceeds the highest expectations, turning a Saturday trip into a weekend treat.
