Food markets and markets in general are a big passion of mine. It is the whole vibe, the relaxed environment, amazing food and handmade things that I love. I also feel that I can relate to the people that sell things that they have put so much energy and love in. The things they made are almost like their babies – you can often see in their eyes how proud they are and also sometimes a little bit nervous…who will buy something? Will people be even interested in my products?
Having had a market stall myself and having helped my mum selling her handmade things I know this feeling and it makes me so happy when I can buy handmade things at a market and support independent business. There is just something so special about it and this feeling doesn’t stay at the market, it makes me happy when I am back at home enjoying a piece of cake that I maybe bought or admiring something handmade that finds a new place in my home.
Therefore I am a big fan of GRUB in Manchester and when they opened the GRUB Food Fair I was very, very excited to go and try the delicious food and drinks on offer!
