Preston City Centre’s about to look bloomin’ marvellous as the ever-popular Lancashire Market returns to Friargate & Orchard Street on Saturday 17th August 2013.
The Market, funded and organised by the city centre’s Business Improvement District (BID) is the biggest Easter event to date, with more than 100 quality local producers offering the very best of Lancashire food, drink, gift & crafts.
With ever-increasing numbers of people both trading and visiting the Lancashire Market, Preston city centre has something unique to offer this Easter Weekend. Mark Whittle, BID’s event manager said: “Several towns regionally host markets, but no one does what we do, on this scale, which is why it’s proved to be ever so popular. We take the best that Lancashire has to offer and promote that as far and wide as possible.”
He added: “More than 340,000 people have visited the Lancashire Market since they began in 2010, travelling from all over the North West; proving there’s a healthy appetite for family friendly events that offer quality local produce”.
Patrons will have the opportunity to sample & purchase everything from artisan breads, locally produced cheeses, fresh meat, handmade chocolates, locally grown fruit & vegetables, honey produced up the road and much much more. The event is free to attend and all Lancashire Market visitors will be offered a discount voucher booklet with money saving coupons for businesses across Preston city centre
