From Foodie Friday to the Saturday Makers Market, it’s clear to see we have a lot of love for great street food in Stockport.
If you’re a big fan of Stockport’s monthly markets, then you’re in for a real treat this weekend.
Clear your diary for the next few days because Stockport’s first annual festival of food and drink is coming to town!
From Friday 6th to Sunday 8th of September, expect three full days of mouth-watering grub from over 70 talented traders.
From burgers to bagels and chipolatas to chorizo – there’s set to be something for every member of the family.
The Market place and the Merseyway shopping centre are the two main areas where the food extravaganza is set to take place, from 10 am until 7 pm.

Stockport’s iconic market place will be lined with over 30 artisan and local producers offering a range of tasty treats.
Our favourite resident market hall traders will also be joining the festival, so make sure you have a wander around all of the amazing stalls too!
In the Merseyway, expect to see 40 traders offering a grand platter of authentic, international street food.
Try fresh, tasty dishes from around the world without taking a single step outside of Stockport.
The Merseyway have also decked the halls with giant Strawberry’s to celebrate the start of Stockport’s first food festival.
