Arts and Crafts Market Returns to Manchester

If you are already looking longingly ahead to the arrival of the Christmas Markets, then some temporary respite is available in the form of the Arts and Craft Market, which returns to St Ann's Square tomorrow (Friday 7th August). I can't pretend it's as atmospheric as its winter relative, but it's always worth browsing the stalls for unusual handmade gifts - this year more than 50 will be setting up shop.

Best of all, of course, is the food and drink - hot pork sandwiches, paella and chorizo rolls will all be available, along with beers, lagers and wines (not sure yet if the Pimms/champagne tent is coming along - please God let it be so). Hours of amusement watching people trying to eat on the move without spilling half of it down themselves.

The market is on until Sunday 16th August and is open daily between 10am and 5.30pm.

Can anyone help me to locate a good market/fair/festival where I can sell my things.
HIBOUX hand knitted children's clothing.I have tried Alderley Edge & the Treacle Market Macclesfield,but both are full.There doesn't appear to be any information on Chorlton markets on the Manchester Markets website & I just go round in circles trying to get intouch with market managers,as there's no contact details for them!
