Shop Local this Christmas

It’s been a wonderful year for Heaton Moor Market – back in February, we closed the top half of Shaw Road to traffic on market day for the first time, enabling more amazing traders to join us and make the market safer for customers – nice to be able to wander around a larger area without the worry of those cars speeding down the road!
Local support has grown & grown, and it has been just great to see so many people enjoying the market, the products on offer and chatting with traders.

The aim behind the market has been to provide a place for small, independent businesses to be able to sell directly to the public, to encourage more people to the Heatons to see all the wonderful shops, bars & restaurants we have, and importantly, to promote the shop local message.

As it is coming to the end of the year and the last market for 2014 is approaching on Sunday 07 December, we would like to encourage everyone to continue to support local businesses by shopping and dining local this Christmas – let’s keep it in The Heatons šŸ˜‰

Gifts & Food

A few ideas for Christmas gift & food shopping:

  • Pokusevski’s – great place to buy fresh cheeses, pies, olives, cured meats and more……also perfect for those gift hampers
  • Eternal Envy Boutique – all your fashion needs this festival season, great place for gift shopping too
  • Back’s – stockists of real ales, wine and all sorts of foodie loveliness for Christmas
  • Blagg’s – looking for kitchen or garden-inspired gifts, be sure to see what’s available here
  • New Skin Beauty at Blazier – get your skin party-ready, or treat someone to a gift voucher for a new year pamper
  • Littlewoods the Butchers – just down the road in Heaton Chapel, order your choice of meat for Christmas Day Lunch
