Heaton Moor Producers Market May 5th 10.30 – 2.30

Market day on Shaw rd this Sunday! We don’t have a maypole for everyone to dance around to welcome May, but we can easily arrange a garrotting by errant bunting that slowly sinks earthwards as the day progresses. The bunting is a trap specially created for tall people and a delight for all children being carried on shoulders who take hold of it and carry it onwards down Shaw rd:) We keep ourselves busy with minor bunting issues throughout the day – it is rather beautiful bunting and I can recommend Noellia #Yanthia for all your bunting needs!

And as if another reason is needed to come to the market – its the Heatons Beer Festival too! From noon in the Scout Hut – ask for directions, they are tucked away just behind us. Always incredibly popular, on all weekend.

Heaton Moor Producer’s Market Nov 4th

We may be toiling under arctic blasts of cold air, but we have the conviviality and warmth of the next market to warm you up! (A bit of seasonal sentimentality creeping in there, Christmas is approaching after all…) So, as you kick through the autumn leaves (delicately avoiding the hidden dog dirt) and smile at your fellow Heatonians on your way to Shaw rd, the gazebos will be up, the thermals will be on and this band of elves shall be awaiting!


The Spice Yard – spice rubs for fish and meats, extremely versatile and tasty

Green Farm Olives – make the most of Paad this month, stock up on olives and feta, he will be away for the next one (I know, utterly outrageous!)

The Cheshire Bakehouse – savoury pastries with a twist and a backing track for all tastes whilst you buy:)

Artisam – last month there was a fryer catastrophe and there were no fries cooked in truffle oil. This month, fingers crossed we are good to go!

Fozzbees – local honey and wax products all produced by Chris. Well, technically by Chris’s bees, but you know what I mean..

Nonna Teresa – Lucio was not here last month, which made it a sad month for ravioli enthusiasts, but not to worry, the world is back on its axis, he’s here this month!

Bit of a Fudge – sweet temptation in a box, in amazing flavours

All About Pies – Fidget, Homity and lots of others. They sound like the 7 dwarves, taste brilliant!

Alam’s – on a cold day, what is nicer than a curry bun, a spicy chicken wrap or a freshly cooked samosa – yum:)

Greek Oil Direct – I’m not sure where these olives went wrong in their life plan, but they went from a sun soaked greek hillside to gracing my salad in Heaton Moor and I am so very grateful

Marmalady – Christmas has definitely arrived in Lyn’s kitchen and so has autumn – remember parkin, ginger cake….?

Mafeking Biltong – dried sausages, jerky and biltong. All handmade and hand prepared, quite the skill

The Deli on the Market – perennial favourite of all things deli, wide range of home made goodies

The Coffee Bean Dream – B’Spoke coffee is off B’spoking at a family gathering but we have the very capable Sarah looking after us – barista coffee to keep us warm and toasty

Saddleworth Tea – tucked away in the same spot each month, Angela keeps us stocked up with hand picked and bagged loose tea of every aroma and flavour – check her stall out

Nana Carter – jams, chutneys, curds, piccalilli all from recipes Sharon has been given by her grandmother and her range is always changing, always seasonal and always gorgeous

Say When – personal choice wines and beers, chat to our resident sommeliers!

The Brownie Owl – did you see the Bonfire Brownies last month, well maybe not, they did sell out quickly! An absolute favourite stall in our market

Haycroft Meadow – another favourite, Ray keeps making more sausages and burgers and they keep selling out! Order your Pigs in Blankets to collect next month.

FatJax – chutneys and sauces laid out in a very orderly fashion, inviting us to try them all. I guarantee you will have a fave:)

Cocoanut Grove – perfect season for a chocolatier, none of that sunshine business melting all the products. Jayne is a happy camper when its a bit chilly – plus chilli in her chocolate (I think I need a lie down, I’m morphing into Dad jokes..)

Sticky Toffee Jo – Jo had the audacity to be ill last month, not this month! This month she will be here in full force wielding her teaspoon of sticky delights

Cheese is Grate – cheese is fabulous on cold nights, that savoury hit with a touch of ginger or cranberries coming in behind. Full range of truckle cheeses available.

I Knead Pizza – hotfood this month is round in shape, red in colour and covered in cheese. You may have heard of it before – pizza, a fine Italian invention if ever there was

Webb’s Beef – freshly butchered chicken, bacon, burgers – come quickly, they sell out!

Hayley’s Cakesquite literally freshly baked, buttercream applied just before arrival – a range of cakes including Autumn / bonfire favourites

The French Corner – fresh baked bread and pastries


Art & Craft

Catfish Kids – children’s toys are back, Christmas ideas and stocking fillers!

What Katy Did – hand picked and personally designed silver jewellery beautifully presented. Will make gorgeous gifts.

Scents and Solace – soy candles and room diffusers. Packaged to make a beautiful gift.

As the temperature plummets towards Autumn, we turn our attention to mists and mellow fruitfulness….. Here at Market HQ, that could be fog creeping up Shaw rd and the windfalls on my lawn getting overripe….

Our Traders however embrace the seasons with warming pies, beautiful autumnal crafts and already having an eye upon Christmas. Plus getting out the thermals, shaking out the scarves and emptying the cupboard to find the gloves that prevent frostbite. The market is coming! Sunday Oct 7th 11-3pm Shaw rd!!

And so to our misty and mellow traders:


Artisam – chips cooked in truffle oil, OMG, chips cooked in truffle oil – plus home made soup and arancini

Alam’s – South Asian street food, just gorgeous. Also ask Adil about his cookery classes, whip up your own Alam’s banquet!

Green Farm Olives – seriously, if you like olives and fresh, creamy feta – just follow the aromas through that Shaw rd fog to this stall

Cheshire Bakehouse – you think you know the cut and jib of a sausage roll? Come and meet the 2018 pastry roll and change your thinking!

The Marmalady – if any stall personifies putting on your favourite socks and sitting by the fire, it is Lyn’s home baked goodies and hand made preserves

Greek Oil Direct – do you remember that lovely summer holiday? Remember sandals? Shorts? Inhale this olive oil and you will be back wafting through Greek alleyways in flimsy garments all over again….

Fozzbees – spare a thought for bees when it gets chilly, it all goes a bit quiet on the bee front. Good job master bee keeper Chris has his honey stocks lined up for our delectation

The Corsican Kitchen – talking of wafting around Greece, who went cruising around Corsica? (See that, that is a bonafide link, right there) Marie rustles up a different Corsican treat every market

Mafeking Biltong – proper cowboy food from the lands of South Africa, biltong and dried sausages in Heaton Moor via Macclesfield….

All About Pies – when I go to sleep, I just dream. When John goes to sleep he dreams of pies and new recipes. He wakes with a jolt, grabs his pen and paper and you eat the results! I am seriously not joking, this man loves his pies!

Saddleworth Tea – did you know there is plastic in tea bags? Who knew that was a thing? Not in Saddleworth loose tea – you get tea, just tea in your tea. If you see what I mean….

Nana Carter – one day we all need to book into Sharon’s kitchen on preparation day, the smells and tastes coming out of that kitchen distilled into small jars of lusciousness – it’s just ridiculous

Heart & Graft – talking of divine aroma, is there a more evocative smell than that of fresh ground coffee? Come to James’ stall and I will be resting my case

FatJax – Paul once told me that to make his hot chilli chutneys he has to wear a full face / gas mask. All for us – the dedication of Heaton moor traders – it’s humbling:)

Say When – Our wine and beer connoiseurs bringing us hand picked and sourced wines from sunnier climes

The Brownie Owl – Lucie makes brownies, richer, deeper and more delicious brownies than I have ever tasted anywhere else

Haycroft Meadow – whilst I am having a jolly time writing this, spare a thought for Ray. Up to his elbows in sausagemeat and spices, just for us – and we appreciate it deeply:)

Cocoanut Grove – someone who is happy when the shadows lengthen is our resident chocolatier. She loves an ambient temperature, none of that sunshine and golden rays melting her hard work, thankyou very much!

Jo’s Sticky Toffee Pudding – dates, toffee, sponge. Really truly, there is no need to say anything else, very, very nice.

Cheese is Grate – a pun a day, always good for the soul. Creamy hard cheeses and delicate soft cheeses – tasty and increases your calcium intake. Here at HM market we care about your bones

The Coffee Bean Dream – Sarah joins us this month with her mobile coffee shop, fantastic fresh, hot coffee and tea available on site

Webbs Beef – not just beef, they also have a fine range of chicken and other meats. Fresh, provenanced, local – a fine butchers coming to you every month!

SubUrban – filled subs (no, not Russian underwater ones) light, fluffy, bread ones – they went down a storm last time, so extra stock being brought in this month:)

Hayley’s Cakes – Hayley’s cakes are just ridiculously nice. Have you tried her Carrot cake? Her Portuguese egg Tarts? I will say no more, just leave you salivating – that’s a rather unctuous word, salivating….

The French Corner – Sans doute, les meilleures viennoiseries et le meilleur pain du monde entier!

Deli on the Market – exactly what it says on the tin – or market stall…

Ben Sedman – bees might be getting chilly in real life, but immortalised in Ben’s art!

Kitsch Republic – would you like your house to have accents of beauty and wit. Who wouldn’t? It can be yours – come and see the fab Kitsch designs:)

Scents and Solace – not your average candle, no this is a Scents and Solace candle – wood wicks (trying saying that after a drink…) and made with soy wax. Only the best for the good people of the 4 Heatons

What Katy Did – well, what she did was go out and find beautiful silver things of beauty, put them together, display them artfully and voila – a stylish stall of intricate silver

Glynn Rowan Scott – you know that over worked word, quirky? It finds its natural habitat here – fabulous reworked glass

Yanthia Art – no 1st Sunday of the month is complete without an intricate artwork on your visage. Noellia’s tiger face paints are just amazing and my grandaughter literally would not wash her face for 3 days when she had a butterfly painted on her cheek!

Flamingo Paperie – full on Christmas here, Advents, charity Christmas cards, beautiful designs, created and printed in Britain.
