Daddy cool is back at it again and this time it's a little closer to home! This weekend, mouths from all over the country will be taking an absolute beating at the Maker's Market at Spinningfields, Manchester. For those of you who have never heard of Spinningfields, it's like Manchester's very own Canary Wharf but way cooler because it's up north and it's where you can find Daddy Cool!
So what's going on?
Like all great Artisan Festivals you can expect to find the absolute best random products you'd have no chance finding in a supermarket. Dozens of manufacturers or "Mad Scientists" can be found enticing the unsuspecting customers with their fancy packaging and charming sales pitches but it's the products themselves that do all the sales. All of the products here have been made with extreme care and pride, so much so that some vendors are reluctant to sell up! But if you can persuade these guys to sell you their very best stuff, you could be going home with the tastiest drinks, fanciest hand crafted ornaments, finest foods and of course devilishly hot sauces!
As much as we could sit here and talk about how brilliant all of the other stalls will be, let’s face it, if you're reading this you're a huge fan of anything with Daddy Cool's mug on it! So here's an idea, Come on down (or up, it doesn't really matter) and head straight for the big Geordie fella surrounded by bottles and people heavily panting. Buy yourself a nice selection of products (because it's not all about the hot sauce you know?! ) and take that right over to one of the other food stalls where you can then buy some nice hot food, add your own condiments and bish bash bosh, you have the best street food around!
As much as I'm sure you'll want to come and camp out in the center of Spinningfields awaiting the start of the market, your best bet is to aim to get there anytime between 11:00 and 17:00 on either Saturday 20th or Sunday 21st of Aug. As I said, why not swing by around lunchtime and eat till your feet can't hold you!
Hope to see you there!
